Statistics Revelations
Chicot, Katie; Holmes, Hilary
Mathematics Teaching, n227 p38-39 Mar 2012
The use, and misuse, of statistics is commonplace, yet in the printed format data representations can be either over simplified, supposedly for impact, or so complex as to lead to boredom, supposedly for completeness and accuracy. In this article the link to the video clip shows how dynamic visual representations can enliven and enhance the appreciation of it. Suddenly data is interesting and informative, leaving the "end user" wanting more. Try the video clip, it might transform well-entrenched reactions to all that we simply label as statistics.
