Reflection/ Statistical Journal

Reflection/ Statistical Journal

The data collection process ,based on my experience, is very tedious as we had to record the information we gathered in each 15 minute interval very quickly before the next 15 minute interval began. But through this data collection process, I realized why statistics are important. Statistics are important because they help us in data collection.

Statistics can be observed anywhere in real life. Election predictions are statistics, anything food product that says they x% more or less of a certain ingredient is a statistic. Life expectancy is a statistic. If you play card games card counting is using statistics. There are tons of statistics everywhere you look.

Though statistics are very useful, when they are not presented properly, may tweak or mislead interpretation of situation.  This may occur when information is gathered wrongly, charts and graphs  do not start from zero, and many others. The statistics could deceive people and could lead to bad events.

 Statistics can come in the form of bar graphs, line graphs, histograms, stem and leaf diagrams and many more.

My experience in creating this blog

I had an easy time in creating this blog because my CCA in primary school had already taught me how to create a blog and it seemed like it was like a normal practice or activity in my CCA. Blogging can be a part of my learning experience in SST because I get to share things I've learnt in school, and  can read other students blogs and can maybe learn new things and their feelings about school.

Feelings about my posting to SST

When I received a letter that I was accepted to SST, I was shocked, elated and sad at the same time. First I was shocked because I thought i would not be accepted to SST in the first place because  I thought I had no hope in getting into the school because i was on the waiting list. Secondly,  I was elated because I was accepted into my dream school. Lastly I was sad because if I entered this school, I could not go to a school which a lot of my friends would go to.   I chose this picture because shock was the strongest emotion I when i received the letter.
