1. (9 points) There are many graphical format to illustrate a given data set. However, some formats are better than others in the sense that they convey important and relevant information in the given data set. For the given data set, pick the most appropriate graphic format to present the above data set, and plot the given data. Feel free to process the data set and/or include additional information you can deduce from the data set that you think can be useful make your point.

1. (7 points) At times, there may be unwarranted features in the plots you come up with, even though they are true representation of the given data. We may call that data noise, and it will distract us from conveying essential information in the data set. Do you encounter this situation in your plot? If so, what would you do to minimize distractions without misrepresenting the data?

Discussion Question

Let me tell you a little dirty secret about the mutual dislike between mathematicians and physicists.  It can escalate into a full-blown war if diplomacy is not attempted properly.

It happens that a graduate student in theoretical/mathematical physics is looking for five members of his dissertation committee.  He has been working closely with three professors in the mathematics department, and 5 professors in the physics department on his dissertation research.

Now comes the monkey wrench.

The mathematics department demands that the chair of the dissertation committee must be a mathematician in order to keep the physicists in check.  What?  How arrogant!  But, there is no other choice if a dissertation committee has to be assembled in time.  As usual, physicists have to swallow their pride in order to keep peace.  Yes, they are just a bunch of you know what (click on the link ) in the mathematics department!

Question: For comic relief, can you figure out how may ways can this helpless graduate student can choose among his beloved professors if the chair of the committee must be a mathematician, and the rest of the committee can be a mix of mathematicians and physicists?

Well, wouldn’t this be great?

OK, let’s get serious…….  Can you help our helpless graduate student?

And let’s be more charitable to mathematicians………., if you can……….
