MDM4U Starting Statistics – 2015-11-30


Today we started to talk about studies that you see in the media, and how they’re reported (accurately and inaccurately).

Tonight’s homework is to read about e-cigarettes (or another interesting topic of your choice) to find out if they’re safe and if they work. Here are the questions you might consider while reading:

  • What information is presented?
  • What do you still wonder?
  • How has the study methodology been explained?
  • What has been “glossed over”?
  • What are the limitations on the study?
  • Is there more research to be completed?
  • Should more research be completed?
  • How much do you think it cost to gather this data and analyze it?
