AP Statistics Final Project

Task:
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.
