Sugarcoated Statistics: An Exercise for the First Day of Class
AbstractIn this exercise, students generate data and calculate descriptive statistics about candy they are given. The activity engages students in discussion about collecting and interpreting data, and about their role in using statistics to make decisions. It also establishes a framework for the study of statistics that can be extended into subsequent class sessions.
