Infographic - Statistics About Japan

Wednesday, Richard Byrne posted this infographic with Statistics about the Japan disaster in his Free Technology for Teachers blog. Since the infographic was so large, he put it into to make it fit on the page.

While we all hate that these tragedies happen, we can also use them as learning opportunities. This infographic is filled with information that can be used in the math classroom to spur rich discussions. For example, Who would have ever expected the wave to move that fast and be that high? How can we use this information in the future in order to be more prepared?

How would you use this infographic with your students? Please leave a comment and share your ideas.
