Misleading stats

Hello, today I was asked to find a completely inaccurate and false headline, graph, or media story that uses statistics in a misleading manner and to explain why it is misleading.

So, I went looking for some false statistics, or blatant lies and to no surprise my search brought me to fox news. Specifically however, an article titled

“CNN has gone bananas and doesn’t seem to care; and other horrible examples of media bias”

So, for one, fox news was calling other news company’s biased, especially CNN, that was their first mistake. Why? you ask, well they are completely biased towards their own conservative agendas and will bend the truth to suit themselves, a, prime example is this whole deal with Shawn Hannity, Michael Cohen, and Donald Trump.

Also, they gave an extremely biased survey which stated that 90 percent of people that work at CNN are biased against Donald Trump. Well, to start, off the survey was done by “mrc newsbusters” an admittedly conservative network devoted to exposing and combating conservative media. So, obviously they have their own agendas and things that they want to push.

But what was the point of the article? Well that was to inform everybody that CNN blamed Trump for somebody coming into their headquarters and injuring someone, however, they don’t show any evidence that this even happened, and, given that this is fox news, it wouldn’t be the first time they lied to get people on their side.

Ill link the article here if you want to read it

Thoughts on data analysis

Questions

  • explain what role you think statistics have in our society.

I believe statistics can help give us a better understanding of our society, even though they can be extremely flawed

  • explain anything new that you have learned about the importance of statistics in our society

They can help to explain certain things and give us information about our society

  • describe the different types of problems with statistics

They can be Biased (depending on who you ask), the language can change peoples mind (in the way the question is asked) , if a survey is presented in an area chosen by the corporation (I.E asking an extremely conservative area about how they feel about gun control, then, labeling the rest of the surrounding area). They can have many more flaws but those are a few.

11.1 Factors Influencing Data Collection

Factors Influencing Data Collection

Original Survey Question:

How irresponsible is Prime Minister Trudeau when it comes to backing the Kinder Morgan pipeline?

Describe the type of influence factor that might affect data collection

-Language

 

Reword the question to eliminate the influence factor.

How do you feel about Justin Trudeau’s opinion towards the Kinder Morgan pipeline?

Everything I know about polynomials

Ft. Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction and general advice….  

 So here are so general guidelines you will want to follow when dealing with polynomials this includes….

some explanations on algebraic tiles

placement of the negative charge

what variables, coefficients, terms, constants and degrees are in a polynomial expression

And further explanation of the distributive product

 

 

So now that you have some general principles down, addition of polynomials seems like the most rational step forward, in this photo you will find.

Addition and subtraction of polynomial expressions using algebra tiles and numbers, and, that’s about it.

 

 

 

 

Finally in the last photo, we have the multiplication and division of polynomial expressions using monomial expressions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks for looking at my project, I hope it made things a bit more clear regarding polynomials.

Thanks again!
