    • Great job sketching your data visualizations and presenting to class! Such interesting, unique, creative and thoughtful solutions. 
    • Please snap a photo of your sketch and email it to me OR save it into the class dropbox folder with your name on it >>Assignment00-VisualizationExercise. I would like to post them on the OL so anyone that may have missed class yesterday can see them.
