Greetings!

Here is a summary of what happened today.

Math
Homework:

  Choose and complete your selected question of the EMath-Statistics from page 8-12 by [ Wednesday 6 January 2016 ] ( For those who don't know how to start, find faults in the statistics to show that it is lying )

What we discussed in class: 

There will be Math remedial on [ Wednesday Afternoon ]. Those who are required to attend it, will be notified.

Stats are used to lie most of the time. 
-Look at the motive of the stats
-Look at the time of the study
-Look at the usage of mean/medium
-Look at the units used
-Look if the data is outdated
-Look if the data is raw(Data is absolute not relative)(Showing Singapore's birthrate and proving US' birthrate)
-Look if the data is culturally sensitive(US' laws and Singapore's laws are different)
-Look for critical words(Safest, Only One, The Best)(This is usually used to lie)
-Look if the source is biased
-Look if the range is specific("From $50 to more than $150" means there is no specific range)
