Description

I collaborated with a PhD film student to create a short film which showcases the use and misuse of data.  The film is cast in the context of a court case where both the prosecutor and defense lawyers use statistics to argue their positions.  The title of the short film is "the case of the defective biscuits".  I've opted to simulate the data myself and would be delighted to share with others for use in teaching.
