Information is very powerful but for the most bit it is bland and unimaginative. Infographics channel information in a visually pleasing, instantly understandable manner, making it not only powerful, but extremely beautiful. Once used predominantly to make maps more approachable, scientific charts less daunting and as key learning tools for children, inforgraphics have now permeated all aspects of the modern world.
Infographics are excellent for finding and using "real world" data to create math problems. But, have you ever thought of having students create their own infographics and use them to create their own math problems. This could be a new and creative way to have students assimilate their learning of various math topics!
