# Mathematics Awareness Month and the theme this year is Mathematics, Statistics,

April is Mathematics Awareness Month and the theme this year is Mathematics, Statistics,
and the Data Deluge. There is evidence of data collection, display and analysis all around.
You have learned about many types of data displays and will learn many more throughout the
years. It is important to be able to look at data and be able to create a display and analyze
