Program 8 focuses on exploratory data analysis, emphasizing that the human eye and brain are the best known devices to see and recognize patterns. Introduces histograms, medians, quartiles, scatterplots and boxplots. Program 9 analyzes how we can predict longterm patterns of chance events by looking at the operation of a gambling casino. Introduces elementary probability concepts along with an analysis of normal curves, standard deviation and expected value

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Describing distributions deals with numerical measures of specific aspects of distribution, such as center (mean, median), spread (percentiles, boxplots, standard deviation), and resistance. Normal distributions covers density curves as smoothed histograms (mean, median, percentiles for density curves) and normal distributions (locating the mean and standard deviation, the 689599.7 rule). Uses animated graphics, onlocation footage, and interviews

Sol Garfunkel takes the viewer on an exploration of statistics and their related display and interpretative disciplines. Methods of gathering useable reliable data, such as randomization, and sampling are discussed. Methods of graphical displaying data from histograms to three dimensional computer arrays are shown. Statistics are shown to be useful when patterns of events are more important than individual events themselves. Finally the methods for stating the reliability of the results are explored

Program 6 introduces the major themes of statistics, collecting data, organizing and picturing data and drawing conclusions from data. Program 7 looks at data collection and explores how surveys and public opinion polls actually work. Discusses the difference between a survey and an experiment and considers why and how chance is used in random sampling to make our confidence in our findings more certain
