It is a project I used in my 12th grade Statistics class. I gave it out the second week of the quarter and set aside one day a week to work with my students on this project through all of first quarter.
This project is aligned with chapters 1-3 of Elementary Statistics: A Step by Step Approach 8th edition, but can be adapted to fit any Statistics textbook.
Specifically, this project includes descriptive and inferential statistics, types of variables and data, data collection, organizing data into graphs like histograms and frequency polygons, measures of central tendency (mean, median, mode, range), measures of variation (range, variance, standard deviation), etc.
This project also helps students learn how to write mathematical analysis in APA report format, as well as how to create a research topic, collect data, and analyze it.
