To give practice in creating useful graphs from data. Your goal is to make a useful graph for several data files.

To give practice in creating useful graphs from data. Your goal is to make a useful graph for several data files. You will be using Anaconda. You can use the lab systems, or install is using these instructions: Anaconda and Spyder

CollegeInSight - a source of data about colleges and universities

Create a Repl.it, and add a file "FinancialAid.csv" to the replt, and copy and paste the csv data from the above link. USe the csv reader learn earlier to bring the data into yuor program.
>

Open Anaconda, and create a new program. Create a Repl.it. You can download the file "FinancialAid.csv" by clicking on the link above, and then saving it to a folder. Use the csv reader learned earlier ( CVS Read) to bring the data into your program.
  Discuss the meaning of the data. Look at the plot examples in matplotlib and discuss possible ways to display this data that effectively communicates somehting interesting about the dat. Your group should consider several options, and decide (and record) what your goal is for this this chart, and pick that chart. Then implement your design, including correct scaling, data labels, and axis labels.

You will demonstrate your solution in class, and turn in the repl.t on moodle (each student).
>
>
You will demonstrate your solution in class, and turn in code on moodle (each student).
 
Step 2

You will do the same exercise again with new data. This should be a different type of graph, and be prepared to justify your choice, and present in lab.

Line: 78 to 78
  Go to CollegeInSight. Select the "Explore all data" option. Then explore the options. You can pick one or more schools, one or more data variables. You should find some interesting data selctions, and produce two more (based on different data) graphs. For each have a goal in mind, which you should state in the write up.
