# Consider the summary statistics of your classmates’ data set…

You do not have to answer the questions!!!!  Just simply provide a individual peer response for each classmate’s discussion
When you respond to Discussion #1 and #2: (math)  In your peer posts, consider the summary statistics of your classmates’ data sets. After the supercar was added to the data set, which summary statistic do you think more accurately reflects the typical vehicle price – the mean or median? Compare the standard deviation before the supercar was added and after it was added. Does this indicate greater variability in the original or modified data set? Based on this information, do you feel the standard deviation can help you identify the presence of an outlier? Why or why not?

Discussion #1
Good evening class,For this week, we were asked to continue our research from last week’s statistics. Last week, we were asked to find out 10 cars’ information to include the prices. This week, this is the information I found the following:
Mean: \$80,892
Median: \$60,195
Standard deviation: \$44,323.17
This information is telling me that the average of the 10 cars I researched were \$80,892 and the middle point was \$60,195. The variation of my data was \$44,323 which is telling me that there is a huge difference between my vehicles.The extra car I chose was a Bugatti Chiron which is priced at 2.9 million dollars. This is one the most expensive car in the world and the craftsman on it is simply amazing. However, I know I will never be able to afford it. This car did change my data dramatically though:
Mean: \$337,174
Median: \$60,395
Standard deviation: \$851,032.59
The Bugatti changed my mean and standard deviation the most.

Discussion #2
Good morning!
Mean: 32,521.00
Median: 28,000
Standard Deviation: 10.15846663844718
The average price of the vehicle is around \$32,521 for all vehicles chosen, also the center of all values is \$28,000. From these values I can draw that from my choices I can get a vehicle I would like and that would be financially responsible between \$28,000-\$32,000.
Mean: 241,920.182
Median: 36,000
Standard Deviation: 542.452727
The outlier increased the values of these calculations tremendously. I did expect them to increase dramatically.

Question the Discussion #3 and #4 answered: Describe the person, place, and time of the outbreak.  How significant is this outbreak to human health? What did you learn? What did you already know about this disease before you read the news brief? Please use additional academic sources to supplement any important information on the disease.

Discussion #3

Discussion #4
Hello Class, I would like to review meningococcal meningitis disease across New Zealand affecting people under 5 years and 13-30 years old. The CDC says meningococcal meningitis is a bacteria infecting the lining of the brain and spinal cord and causes swelling and if not treated death. Signs and symptoms include fever, headache, stiff neck, nausea, vomiting, photophobia, and altered mental status.  According to the Institute of Environmental Science and Research data, there have been 69 recorded cases of meningococcal disease spread all over New Zealand, a 50% increase from last year. This is very significant since this uptake is unlike in the region for many years and meningococcal has two variations meningitis and septicemia. I just learned that out of the two, meningitis is uncommon which makes it more of a reason to keep an eye on this outbreak. What I have also learned from the CDC is that in babies it’s harder to notice these symptoms but the main thing you can look is if their anterior fontanel is building out. This is the soft part of the baby’s skull, if there is intracranial pressure this is the only spot it will try to push out. Before this article and research, I only knew meningococcal as a part of the MMR vaccination. I believe it was eradicated in the US like polio and measles. All these diseases have been drastically reduced or eradicated due to the creation of vaccines. In these past couple of years there have been more skeptics of vaccines, even to the ones that have decades of research behind them.

Question that discussion #5 and #6 answered: Childhood obesity is becoming an epidemic in our society today. What do you feel has contributed to this problem, and list a minimum of three ways to combat this problem you personally think would work.

Discussion #5
Hello Everyone, First of all, i pick obesity because generally a child is not considered obese until their weight is at least 10% higher than what is recommended for their height and body type.  Childhood obesity is a serious problem in the United States, putting children and adolescents at risk for poor health. Obesity is among the easiest medical conditions to recognize, but the most difficult to treat. Overweight children are much more likely to become overweight adults unless they adopt and maintain healthier patterns of eating and exercise. The causes of obesity are complex and include genetic, biological, behavioral and cultural factors. Basically obesity occurs when a person eats more calories than the body burns up. If one parent is obese, there is a 50% chance the children will also be obese. If both parents are obese, the children have an 80% chance of being obese. There are many risks and complications with obesity which can include increased risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, breathing problems and trouble sleeping. Childhood and adolescent obesity is also associated with increased risk of emotional problems like depression, anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder. I think the way to prevent obesity is to reduce the number of calories being eaten and to increase the child’s level of physical activity. Making healthy eating and regular exercise with your  family by taking part of an activity that can improve the chances of successful weight control for the child. Children can also be referred to a dietician to help develop a weight-management program for the child and their family.

Discussion #6
Good morning class, Childhood obesity really hits home for me as I grew up being overweight most of my childhood. There are many factors that contributes to the rising of children’s waistlines. The first I would like to expand upon is the quality of food that is marketed to Children is not good for them. There are countless commercials and different superhero or Disney themed food throughout the supermarket. Unfortunately, Micky the mouse is not standing in front of the vegetable isle. They are plastered on cereals, yogurts, and other items. When you take a look at these items you will see how much ADDED sugar is in them. It is actually insanely hard to find a product with ZERO added sugar. Some of these products have 25% of the daily value in just 1 cup. We can combat this through education, explaining to our children what a healthy diet consists of, and setting the example ourselves. Lack of physical activity is also a big factor. Less kids are walking or biking to school, and some safety issues are also present. Kids used to live in a safer world where they could ride bikes until the streetlights came on, now a days, depending on where you live parents are happier keeping their kids inside. To combat this, you need to make time for activities. It can be hard, but even taking your kid to the gym with you or going outside on a simple walk for 30 – 45 minutes will get their heart rate up.  Lastly, I believe technology plays a roll. As a parent I feel I need to be more interactive with my child. Too often, and honestly NOTHING against them, but you see parents just through a screen in front of their kids face and leave them alone. This Is ok in certain situations, but more often than not, the screen is in front of them when they wake up, on the way to school, at dinner, after dinner, and then our kids are begging for phones at younger and younger ages. This can result in anxiety issues, and sleep problems when all this exposure to blue light, and information is at their fingertips. I personally catch myself staring at my phone when I am with my kid, I will recognize it and put it upstairs so I can fully be interactive with my kid. I want him to grow up playing outside and not so dependent on technology to have a good time.
