Identifying “good” and “bad” statistics – Statistics can offer us an amazing way to understand our world.  But they can also be misleading.  It is important to understand how statistics are generated so that you can identify statistics that look reliable, and statistics that do not!

Look up an example of a time when statistics were used by an advertiser or other entity to mislead the reader and/or public.  Describe the scenario, the statistic involved, and the specific way the statistics are misleading.  What would be a more appropriate way to present the information, and what would the public likely conclude about the product or situation if the information had been presented appropriately?  Make sure you include your reference!
