Create a workbook that will allow you to manage takeout orders for a favorite restaurant. Imagine that you are working in an office, and you are going to make regular lunchtime trips to a favorite restaurant for others in the office. To manage the orders effectively, you’ll need two sheets. See full details after the break.
Sorry I couldn’t be with you all today. Today’s lesson is focused on lying with charts.
Next, I want you to read through this: https://cseweb.ucsd.edu/~ricko/CSE3/Lie_with_Statistics.pdf
And then, I want you to try it out with your advertising analysis. Can you create charts that imply contradictory things. For instance, can you provide one chart that shows women are underrepresented and one that shows they are overrepresented. No cheating, you have to use the numbers you actually found (if you want to add someone else’s numbers to your data to get a broader sampling, you may).
Develop an Excel workbook with a data sheet and a reporting sheet.
The datasheet needs the following columns:
- Site the ad is on
- Company advertising
- Product Category (data validated from list on reporting sheet)
- # of males pictured in the ad
- # of females pictured in the ad
- # of cats in the ad
- # of dogs in the ad
It may be necessary to disable ad blockers for this assignment.
You’ll go looking around the web — especially sites that provide information or service for free — think news or television sites, weather, recipes, song lyrics or what not, and look at the ads companies are paying to put on those sites. Find at least twenty-five different ads.
The reporting tab should calculate:
- Count of Advertisements
- Total number of males depicted
- Total number of females depicted
- Average number of males depicted
- Average number of females depicted
It should perform those calculations for all the advertisements combined, and also separately for each individual category. The categories are:
- Financial Services
- Home goods (appliances…)
Download and learn to use one of the three selected research tools we discovered:
Use the research you found in doing your 5-hour project. Put the research into the tool.
Then, write a 5-paragraph style essay using Microsoft Word and use the tool you chose to manage the research piece of it – notes, citations, works cited.
The goal here is more to learn the tool than to write a great paper. Using real research means that you will find out how the thing works and run into the realistic advantages/disadvantages of the tool you chose. This is the kind of learning people are seldom interested in when they have a paper deadline coming, but it is the kind that, once you have, can make that deadline and research more manageable.
