## Christmas Glyphs: Fun Graphing for December

A glyph as it relates to math is a pictorial representation of data. That sounds like a pictograph, doesn’t it?  Rather than put pictures in the form of a graph, though, a glyph actually becomes the picture as it’s created based on provided criteria. Ooh.  That sounds hard!  I promise, glyphs aren’t hard at all….
