Unless I got way too high in the parking lot before class I do not see how this makes any sense. Here is how it went down. She takes a small box of blue and white crystals, they were split evenly. She shook them up etc. So she hands 5 people a "random" ( even though it wasn't ) sample of crystals. There was a total of about 50. Here is a close example of how it turned out. Person 1 - 9 Total - 3 Blue Person 2 - 10 Total - 0 Blue Person 3 - 5 Total - 2 Blue Person 4 - 2 Total - 1 Blue Person 5 - 3 Total - 3 Blue Anyway, she is going over what type(s) of bias were present. Some person raises their hand and says it is biased because some people GOT MORE than the other when she was handing them out. I thought in my mind immediately that was strange. The teacher was like yepp.. then went on.. I didnt say anything. So when she was done talking I raised my hand and asked why would it matter the amount each person got as long as you handed out the same amount of crystals and hypothetically it really was random? She was like, you will learn why in chapter 5 and hurried along. I was going to say "Are you sure about that?" - but didn't - just because I could have really been too high at the time, but on the other hand it obviously wasn't worth it. So really the question is, or better put my point, is that it shouldn't matter who got what because in the end the fractions should total up to the same amount from the total sample. Did I fail here big time ( wouldn't surprise me ) or is my teacher really that dumb? State school of course.
