Chart of the Week: What happens in an internet minute?

Dec 02, 2019
Chart of the Week

This one is for the math teachers out there. Have your students analyze both pie charts to see how activities on the internet have changed over the past year:


  • Compare activities on the internet for 2018 and 2019 Be sure that the year over year comparisons you are analyzing have the same units. 
    • Which activities grew the most on a percentage basis? 
    • Which activities grew the least on a percentage basis?  
  • Make your predictions for 2020 for each of the activities. 


Develop your students' analytical capabilities using NGPF's Data Crunch resource. 

We used the 2019 information in a recent QoD. 



About the Author

Tim Ranzetta

Tim's saving habits started at seven when a neighbor with a broken hip gave him a dog walking job. Her recovery, which took almost a year, resulted in Tim getting to know the bank tellers quite well (and accumulating a savings account balance of over $300!). His recent entrepreneurial adventures have included driving a shredding truck, analyzing executive compensation packages for Fortune 500 companies and helping families make better college financing decisions. After volunteering in 2010 to create and teach a personal finance program at Eastside College Prep in East Palo Alto, Tim saw firsthand the impact of an engaging and activity-based curriculum, which inspired him to start a new non-profit, Next Gen Personal Finance.
