Tools for communicating quantitative information in an intelligent, effective and persuasive way. Topics covered include 1) writing and speaking about data; 2) data management in Excel in order to prepare data for charting; 3) understanding and ability to deploy core concepts in of design, layout, typography and color to maximize the impact of their data visualizations 4) determining which types of statistical measures are most effective for each type of data and message; 5) determining which types of design to use for communicating quantitative information; and 6) designing graphs and tables that are intelligent and compelling for communicating quantitative information.
Class Notes:
http://classinfo.umn.edu/?dorelien+PA5929+Spring2020
Class Description:
The class will have a practical approach, combining discussion and practical exercises. The course is designed to be like a walk-through, starting from collecting and organizing data and ending with advanced graph designs.

The course in the spring will only focus on Excel. There will be additional modules available for more advance Excel users. I will not teach R as part of the class but will make available the R modules and handouts for students that are interested in learning R. Based on demand I might also hold an extra voluntary R session.
Learning Objectives:
Learn to make better tables- see example below
ClearOffTheTableMd
Learn to make better figures
Grading:
Please note that it is possible to audit the course or take the course S/N. I encourage students that are already taking a full load of classes to sign up for this class S/N, that way you can focus on learning the material and not on the letter grade.

4 Problem Sets (each problem set is worth 15% of final grade). The problem sets will be due one week after being assigned and will need to be uploaded to Moodle before the start of class.
1 Final Report (30% of final grade)
Class Format:
Meets twice a week for first half the semester. The majority of class time is spent doing in-class exercises.

Class Notes:
http://classinfo.umn.edu/?dorelien+PA5929Spring2018
Class Description:
Please note that it is possible to audit the course or take the course S/N.
The course in the spring will only focus on Excel (and possibly Tableau) and will be geared towards students who really haven't used Excel much. The spring course will meet twice a week for the first half of the semester. Both the fall and spring courses will cover the same key concepts, it's just that in the fall course you will learn how to make the visualizations in both Excel and R.

If there is enough student interest, the last two weeks of the course will be an introduction to Tableau (https://public.tableau.com/s/).
Grading:
Please note that it is possible to audit the course or take the course S/N. I encourage students that are already taking a full load of classes to sign up for this class S/N, that way you can focus on learning the material and not on the letter grade.

6 Problem Sets (each problem set is worth 11% of final grade). The problem sets will be due one week after being assigned and will need to be uploaded to Moodle before the start of class.
1 Final Report (34% of final grade)
