Alex Using Statistics For A Presentation
Song: Mas Que Nada
Group: Brazil 66
Alex has a Manga (Japanese Cartoonized)
book on Statistics.
This is an excellent book for advanced High Schoolers.
It is no nonsense and explains the essence of Statistics and how to apply it
using the Excel computer program.
Alex learned the basics of Statistics using this book
(I hadn't taken Statistics until University...
Alex has a better understanding of Statistics than I have ever had).
He finds Statistics interesting and useful in everyday life.
Alex recently gave another presentation to his Math Club class.
He had plotted the math tests he had administered to his class...
and had shown each class member's scores and their distribution as a class.
After Alex had graded his classmates' tests of his self designed math test...
he compiled and analyzed them using Statistical methods.
Alex then presented his findings to his class.
Although he used Statistical ranges to show how each student stood
in the class...he graded on a Non - Floating Standard
(He did NOT grade on the curve...
I had long ago explained to Alex the STUPIDITY of such a practice).
Another step in the correct direction for Alex's dream...
to be a guide to others in the understanding of the world through Math.
