Over the next few weeks you should begin collecting your data set for your Wearable Data Portrait. Please record this data in a Google Drive Spreadsheet. If you have questions about your specific choice of data let me know – but be ready to talk about what data you are collecting on October 31st in class.

This can be anything from the personal, to local, national, global, or universal:
How many steps I took today
How many people did I see on their phone
How many people were wearing brown shoes
How much water did I drink today
Postage stamp cost increases
Drought rates of crops in California
