Product Description
Did you know that 90% of all serial killers are right-handed?

Well, of course... 90% of all people in general are right-handed.

This is a great activity that can be used as an introduction to any statistics class or unit. It makes students think about how people misinterpret statistics and how two people can look at the same data and draw different conclusions.
