It has been 3 weeks and I am off to a good start. January has been cold in New England, but I have gotten out and put down some miles. On January 1, I ran in the 35th Annual Hangover Classic 10K in Salisbury Massachusetts...
Math people, do any of you have a photo (hopefully something used on a website or something where the people in it are ok with it being used) of an undergraduate math class doing some group work (bonus if the instructor is pictured too)?? I have a student doing a presentation on inquiry oriented teaching/learning in undergrad math courses and would like to use a picture of this sort of class setting, but does not want to use me or my colleagues doing it. Photo will be credited of course.
The easy analogy is an example all intro stat classes use about mean and median. If you are only using one measure, use the median; however, if you use many measures the mean is way more helpful. So in this case the pvalue is like the mean, completely alone it has very little use and effect size is better, but used as part of other evidence it can br very powerful.
