Two Views of a Tax Cut part of National Numeracy Network:Teaching Resources:Quantitative Writing:Examples
This assignment is based on two graphs that appeared in the New York Times on April 7, 1995. The graphs provide "Republican" and "Democratic" views of a proposed tax cut. The graphs each measure the percent of "something" and in the assignment, students will compare the two graphs and determine whether both graphs are valid representations of the proposed tax cut.
