Sampling, Surveying and Data Analysis (from Films on Demand)
Description: Emma’s band wants to post a music video on YouTube, but they aren’t sure which of their songs should be featured. Emma’s best friend helps them choose by using Facebook contacts to conduct a survey, exploring the concepts of qualitative and quantitative data along the way. Viewers learn how to sample, present, and analyze data; generate histograms, frequency tables, stem and leaf plots; determine the interquartile range; and more. The video also defines random and nonrandom samples, dot and box plots, outliers, and other essential terms.
