This project covers math standards related to both ratios & proportions and statistics. Students choose a survey topic and population, creating a unique project. This task gives students an opportunity to show their mastery of: data gathering, survey sampling, developing appropriate survey questions, data tables, Direct Variation, discrete graphs, dot plots, box and whisker graphs, and calculating the inter-quartile range. Extensions are included to incorporate scatter plots, mean absolute deviation, comparing two populations, and standard deviation.
