Product Description
This is meant for an advanced college level statistics course but could be adapted for lower level statistics.

With a partner or in a small group each student will have their own paper airplane and fly 3 trial runs. They will measure the distance the plane flies and round to the nearest inch. They will then use the best score for each person in the class as our data set. They will also divide the data into two sets by male and female.
Students will analyze shape, center, spread, and possible outliers. Students will create a histogram of their data. They will calculate z-scores and percentiles and interpret.
