of Hispanic Heritage Month the MacKinnon bilingual class read different articles about Hispanic populations of the United
States. The first article identified ten states with Hispanic populations.
The students used this data to create bar graphs in Microsoft Excel to analyze and compare these populations. The second article identified the Spanish - speaking countries with the highest number of immigrants to the U.S. The students created pie charts in MS Excel
and on the web site Create A Graph to depict this data.
also explored additional statistics on the data.
This was a great
way to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month , to learn about Microsoft Excel, and to use the web site Create A Graph from the National Center
for Educational Statistics.
