Exploratory projects in the NEW edition of Beginning Statistics immerse students in real-world applications of statistics.
Assign these projects as homework or small group assignments to stimulate discussion and collaboration among students.
In the age of the smartphone, younger people tend to get a bad rap for spending too much time on their mobile devices, but what about the older generations doling out these criticisms? This confidence intervals project allows your class to investigate the claim that students log higher screen time averages than their school’s faculty and staff.
P.S. It’s also a great way to become more aware of your daily screen time!
Psst…We even threw in a bonus project!
