I don't understand "Using Graphs to Persuade". Does anyone know of somewhere where they explain how to do it, or someone on here to explain?

Thanks!

A wonderful book on the subject is "The Visual Display of Quantitative Information" by Edward R. Tufte, but it may be hard to find in libraries. If you have a week for the assignment, it's worth looking for.

Stock market "technical analysts" use graphs of stock prices to tell them and others what stocks to buy and sell, trying to predict future trends. Most are not very successful at it. Some of their favorite patterns, to which they have given names, are described at:

Pick up an issue of USA Today and you may find several examples of graphs being used to persuade.
