Case study: A brief review of online visualisation tools that can help There is a growing range of online tools to help users their data. This brief review highlights four online visualisation tools that can help. The links page also links to lots more useful resources. Five Free Infographic Templates Infographics are a powerful tool for capturing the attention of your target audiences. In fact, businesses that publish infographics grow their traffic an average of 12% more than those that don’t. The hard part, of course, is finding the time and resources to create these infographics. That’s why we’ve created five fully customizable infographic templates that will give you the inspiration and foundation you need to build your own infographics right in PowerPoint. The infographics created in this customizable PowerPoint template highlight how you can:
Basic Experimental Design Sid Sytsma Website Administrator's Note: I have always considered Sid Sytsma's short article on experimental design one of the best short pieces on the subject I have ever seen, and provided a link to it from my Lutherie Information Website. Professor Sytsma retired and no longer felt the need to retain his site, and when this happened I asked if I could please host this article on my own site. Recently I have been informed that a number of other folks have seen the value of Professor Sytsma's article and have provided links to it, but unfortunately a number of these links attribute this work to me. Please, if you do link to this page, give credit where credit is due.
About John Snow John Snow is an iconic figure in epidemiology and public health, best known for his work on cholera, for a famous map, and for organising the removal of a pump handle in Soho. Less well known are his important contributions to anaesthesia and to epidemiological methods, and his engagement in public debates of the time.

Chapter 9 Chapter 9 Experimental Research (Reminder: Don’t forget to utilize the concept maps and study questions as you study this and the other chapters.) In this chapter we talk about what experiments are, we talk about how to control for extraneous variables, and we talk about two sets of experimental designs (weak designs and strong designs). (Note: In the next chapter we will talk about middle of the road experimental designs; they are better than the weak designs discussed in this chapter, and they are not as good as the strong designs discussed in this chapter. The middle of the road, or medium quality designs are called quasi-experimental designs.)
