Being a critical reader of numerical information is an integral
part of being literate in today's data-drenched world. Uniquely
addressing both mathematics and language issues, this text shows
how critical readers dig beneath the surface of data to better
evaluate their usefulness and to understand how numbers are
constructed by authors to portray a certain version of reality.
Engaging, concise, and rich with examples and clear connections to
classroom practice, it provides a framework of critical questions
