#23 Math Minute: A Yummy Graph!

infographic |ˌinfōˈɡrafik|
noun

a visual image such as a chart or diagram used to represent information or data. a good infographic is worth a thousand words.

I went out to lunch recently with my family and noticed an eye-caching infographic at the center of each table.  I wish I could post a picture of it, but that would ruin the surprise!

Below you will find the data from the infographic.  Your job is to create a picture that displays all the information.  The only requirement is that all the information below is somewhere on your 8 1/2 x 11 page.  Use colors, crayons, pencils…whatever!  Get creative!  Don’t know what an infographic is?  No problem!  Take a look at some of these examples.

Data that must be included on your infographic…

  • 39,598,080 mini gingerbread muffins devoured last year from this salad bar
  • 1980 was when this restaurant introduced a salad bar.  It was based on the suggestion of a radio salesperson.
  • 10,000,000+ salad bars were ordered at this restaurant in 2015
  • The original salad bar at this restaurant offered 9 ingredients.  Now there are 50+ ingredients and they include select USDA-certified organics.
  • There are 1,906,884 possible combinations for a 5-ingredient salad with a base of lettuce.
  • If you had 1 salad a day, it would take 5,224 years before repeating a salad combination.
  • No MSG since 2008 and everything on the salad bar is trans-fat free.

Make sure your first and last name, teacher’s name, and school are on the back of your page.  Give your completed infographic to the EY coordinator at your building.  We will post some examples on the blog and the winner will receive a free salad bar from the restaurant!
