Resource: technically true…

I used this in the past as an opener to Sixth Form lessons, one slide per week. Each statement, while technically correct (the best kind of correct), are either missing information, shows false correlations, have questionable choices of statistics or are missing definitions. I go for the sense of questioning information (particularly data and claims) so I suppose it would fall under scientific critical thinking. Most of them are now pinned to the wall around the classroom. Now I think about it, it would be good to find some real world examples of the misuses of data from these statements to act as a comparison. If only there were some examples of misleading uses of statistics and statements available on the teh internets. Anyway, take it as a Christmas gift.
