Data and the Chocolate Chip Cookie Challenge 

At one point in my life as a mother to young teens, I decided to make the perfect chocolate chip cookie. This, of course, meant locating the perfect recipe. A year-long journey began with the traditional Toll House recipe and ended with a triple vanilla delight. While my own children rolled their eyes at yet another batch, their friends eagerly asked to come visit when they knew it was cookie-baking day. I will say that this process brought me much joy and introduced me to thinking about how curious it was that the same ingredients, applied in differing amounts, could bring about such different results. Fast forward to a recent post in a study group about data and an amazing graphic sent by Debbie Abilock of Noodle Tools, which really set the stage for looking at data in a new way.
