“An
important practice is to check the validity of any data set that you
analyze. One goal is to detect typos in the data, and another would
be to detect faulty measurements.”
“Recall
that outliers are observations with values outside the “normal”
range of values of the rest of the observations.”
“Specify
a large population that you might want to study and describe the type
numeric measurement that you will collect,” few examples:

A count of things

The height of people

A score on a survey

The weight of something
“What
would you do if you found a couple outliers in a sample of size 100?”
“What
would you do if you found two values that were twice as big as the
next highest value?”
Illustration
of a street art
“You
may use examples from your area of interest, such as”:

Monthly sales levels of a product

File transfer times to different computer on a network

Characteristics of people “(height, time to run the 100 meter dash,
statistics grades, etc.)”

Trading volume on a stock exchange

Other such things.
There
is no requirement to use sources from the Internet, but if you use an
idea or a quotation from any source, it should be cited.
The
citation includes:

Putting the author and year at the end of the sentence

and then adding a reference at the end to describe the source.

Math. Yikes. Statistics. Double yikes.
