Algorithms drawn as IKEA furniture instructions

Learning algorithm steps can be a challenge when viewed only through code or words. So Sándor P. Fekete, Sebastian Morr, and Sebastian Stiller put together IDEA. The collection of illustrations describes common programming algorithms, such as Quicksort, in the style of IKEA furniture assembly instructions. Allen wrench not required.

Strictly statistical approach

This comic from Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal speaks to me. You can quantify all the things to look at said things more objectively. However, there are always other things that cannot be quantified and in real life, they are often intertwined with the numeric portion of the data. Split apart the quantitative and qualitative, and you end up making all decisions based on stab percentage. Tags: humor, SMBC

Sketchy summary statistics

Ben Orlin of Math With Bad Drawings explains the pitfalls of using summary statistics — mean, median, and mode — to make decisions in life. Aggregates like these are meant as wideout overviews. Look deeper for details. Tags: humor
