### Statistics Help for Journalists and learners- 0 views

•
Numbers can't "talk," but they can tell you as much as your human sources can. But just like with human sources, you have to ask! So what should you ask a number? Well, mathematicians have developed an entire field - statistics - dedicated to getting answers out of numbers. Now, you don't have to have a degree in statistics in order to conduct an effective "interview" with your data. But you do need to know a few basics. Here, described in plain English, are some basic concepts in statistics that every writer should know...

### Worldometers - real time world statistics -Wooooow- 1 views

•
See real-time data on a host of topics important to daily life around the world!! * world population (e.g., births this year, deaths today, net population growth for today) * government and economics (daily government spending by category; computers sold) * society and media (new book titles published, money spent on video games, Google searches) * environment (forest loss, carbon dioxide emissions, current average temperature) * food (tons of food produced; people who died of hunger) * water (water consumed, people with no access to safe drinking water) * energy (solar energy striking Earth; oil pumped; oil, gas, and coal left) * health (deaths caused by alcohol, suicides, road traffic accident fatalities) Worldometers' algorithm takes the latest statistical data available from the United Nations (UN), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and other institutions, and then processes them together with its estimated progression to compute figures current up to the millisecond. Available in dozens of languages, this site is part of the Real Time Statistics Project. Read more about that here: http://www.realtimestatistics.org/

### Pure Reasoning in 12-Month-Old Infants as Probabilistic Inference- 3 views

•
From the abstract (full text requires subscription): "Many organisms can predict future events from the statistics of past experience, but humans also excel at making predictions by pure reasoning: integrating multiple sources of information, guided by abstract knowledge, to form rational expectations about novel situations, never directly experienced. Here, we show that this reasoning is surprisingly rich, powerful, and coherent even in preverbal infants. When 12-month-old infants view complex displays of multiple moving objects, they form time-varying expectations about future events that are a systematic and rational function of several stimulus variables. Infants' looking times are consistent with a Bayesian ideal observer embodying abstract principles of object motion. The model explains infants' statistical expectations and classic qualitative findings about object cognition in younger babies, not originally viewed as probabilistic inferences."

### Netboooks Are Dead, Baby, Netbooks Are Dead - NetBooks - Gizmodo- 5 views

•
Statistics that lie! This is a great example of data that isn't reported correctly. The article decries the death of Netbooks, when in fact it is more about a stabalization of sales. I encourage math teachers to let students read the article and at least the first two responses. It's a great example of blatant misinformation.

### Highlights From TIMSS 2011: Mathematics and Science Achievement of U.S. Fourth- and Eig...- 2 views

•
From the National Center of Education Statistics: "The Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 2011 is the fifth administration of this international comparative study since 1995 when first administered. TIMSS is used to compare over time the mathematics and science knowledge and skills of fourth- and eighth-graders. TIMSS is designed to align broadly with mathematics and science curricula in the participating countries. The results, therefore, suggest the degree to which students have learned mathematics and science concepts and skills likely to have been taught in school. In 2011, there were 54 countries and 20 other educational systems that participated in TIMSS, at the fourth- or eighth-grade level, or both. The focus of the report is on the performance of U.S. students relative to their peers in other countries in 2011, and on changes in mathematics and science achievement since 2007 and 1995. For a number of participating countries and education systems, changes in achievement can be documented over the last 16 years, from 1995 to 2011. This report also describes achievement within the United States by sex, race/ethnicity, and enrollment in public schools with different levels of poverty. In addition, it describes achievement in nine states that participated in TIMSS both as part of the U.S. national sample of public and private schools as well as individually with state-level samples of public schools."

### Knowledge of fractions and long division predicts long-term math success- 8 views

•
"A research team led by Carnegie Mellon University's Robert Siegler has identified a major source of the gap -- U. S. students' inadequate knowledge of fractions and division. Although fractions and division are taught in elementary school, even many college students have poor knowledge of them. The research team found that fifth graders' understanding of fractions and division predicted high school students' knowledge of algebra and overall math achievement, even after statistically controlling for parents' education and income and for the children's own age, gender, I.Q., reading comprehension, working memory, and knowledge of whole number addition, subtraction and multiplication. Published in Psychological Science, the findings demonstrate an immediate need to improve teaching and learning of fractions and division."
