Notes for Reviewers
This site is in an early stage of development, and we would welcome your comments on any aspect of the content and presentation. A few points you may wish to keep in mind:
- The appearance of the site is provisional: we shall be engaging a designer for the eventual 'look and feel'
- We have a limited amount of content, and it is currently all accessible from the Featured Content menu to the right
- We have future plans for the site, and we would like eventually to cover a wide range of Issues, Quantitative Concepts, and Qualitative Concepts.
- You will see that the 'stories' are structured at multiple 'levels' corresponding to mathematical difficulty:
- No maths, just pictures and text for general readership
- Basic arithmetic, at around GCSE level.
- Some algebra, probability distributions, basic statistical concepts at around A level.
- Full mathematical exposition, at university level.
We are unsure of what to call these 'levels' and how to clearly indicate the technicality of the content
- Note our provisional logo
- Our provisional name, Understanding Uncertainty, is shared by an excellent recent book by Dennis Lindley
- Please email us with comments using the Contact us page
- To view the animations you will need to have Flash Player 8 or 9 installed in your browser
Many thanks from the Understanding Uncertainty team, comprising David Spiegelhalter, Mike Pearson, Hauke Riesch, Owen Smith and Arciris Garay.
