Develop a question, research the question and use statistical analysis
to determine an answer.
Specifically, decide on a question to investigate – be ingenious (see links below for ideas). Design an experiment to run, then go through the steps OR design a study, recruit subjects or whatever, place subjects into groups (randomly, of course), impose the treatments, etc. OR perform a simulation on the calculator.
Collect data, plot the data, and finally perform inference. Go through the 4 inference steps as in Chapter 10. Then analyze the data and draw a conclusion. Write up a report and orally report your study findings to the class.
Work in teams of 2.
