    Link: This University Doesn`t Understand Fractions - Or pie charts. Maybe they should invest something in the math department.

    Well, if the red part is their operating budget (60m) then, relatively speaking, 1/3 of that (20m) goes to aid. The chart is misleading (it adds 100% to 33.3%), but it seems to make sense to me...

    Or perhaps they should invest money in more intelligent graphic designers.

    They either don`t understand fractions, percentages or pie-charts.

    True, 1/3 of 60 mil is 20 mil, but the chart is showing a total of 80 mil, of which 20 mil is 1/4.

    Seems like the cheerleader from the previous post spent too much time learning how to scream a chant and forgot how to use fractions....

    Unless their operating budget isn`t 80 million like it shows twice, the only thing wrong is the 1/3 at the top.

    Fractions are so much easier to learn when coupled with learning decimals and percents, oh and using real cake.

    Yeah, the 1/3 at the top is pretty wrong however...

    It has to be. The Obama budget claims its 2/3.
