Snow Day Items of Note

Happy snow day, all! I hope you are able to stay warm, dry, and safe today. It was a mess out there this morning, and it still is in many places, so if you can avoid going out you probably should!

There will be no make up assignments over the weekend for any of my classes, with the exception of AP Statistics. For you, I would like you to watch a pair of videos that will give you a solid introduction to our next chapter about observational studies and experiments. They are

  • The Question of Causation – A historical story describing how researchers untangled the relationship between smoking and lung cancer
  • Designing Experiments – A discussion of the difference between observational studies and experiments, with examples about marine life on the remote Line Islands and a medical study about osteoarthritis treatments.

Have a good weekend!
