Statistics
Biggest Smallest
Who's normal
The information age


As an introductory topic for statistics I have chosen to look at the concept of size. When we work with a lot of information, which is what statistics is about, the end requirement mathematically is to make sense of it.

To make sense of value, we need to begin early, by looking and understanding value - or in real terms, size.

Different size adjectives (opposites):

Big or small

Little and large

Medium and Average (in between)

Long and short

Tall and tiny

Thick and thin

Gigantic and microscopic

Fat and skinny

Wide and narrow

Loud and quiet

Light and dark

Wet and dry
