(Personal Profile & Insightful Information Visualizations)

The information you provide will be used to adjust course materials to the expertise, (departmental) background, and interests of registered students. Plus, you might use these profiles when selecting partners for team projects in this course. (II) You will select and discuss three insightful information visualizations that helped you or others to understand what words could not explain.
