Good discussion, but your podcast had some very distracting noises (doors opening/closing, weird tapping noises towards the end). Don’t forget, your post should also include the following: <ul> <li>Group members present during the discussion</li> <li>What your club discussed</li> <li>How you discussed it</li> <li>Any points of conflict/disagreement in discussion</li> <li>Questions that came up as a result of the discussion</li> </ul> For next time, please respond to the following questions: <ol> <li>Choose one of the quotations inside the front cover and discuss how it relates to the Introduction.</li> <li>List as many sources of sample bias as you can that are mentioned in Chapter 1 and provide an example of each.</li> <li>Put the second paragraph on Page 18 (“A river cannot….”) into your own words.</li> <li>What is the advantage of a stratified random sample and what difficulties does it pose, according to this chapter?</li> <li>Explain why advertisers often rely on a very small sample to substantiate their claims.</li> <li>What does the author mean on Page 45 when he says, “Hardly anybody is exactly normal in any way…?”</li> </ol> Finally, when discussing chapters 3, 5, or 6, incorporate the following article into your discussion: http://gizmodo.com/how-to-lie-with-data-visualization-1563576606 Also, each member of your group should find an article online containing a misleading graph and discuss it during the podcast (be sure to talk about why it’s misleading!). Be sure to include a link to all articles in the text of your post of the podcast that corresponds to chapters 3, 5, or 6. Log in to post a comment.
