AP Statistics Assignment for 9/20

Tonight, complete your response to the Chapter 4 Investigative Task. As with the previous task, your response should be completed in a Google Document and submitted to me (bkirk@icsd.k12.ny.us) by the beginning of class tomorrow. Please name your file appropriately.  The file name should have the format “LastName.FirstName.Ch4InvTask”. For example, mine would be “Kirk.Benjamin.Ch4InvTask“. Remember also that you may use no resources except for your own notes (including classwork sheets)

In order to create your graph, I recommend you use the online tools found at Stapplet, specifically the 1 Quantitative Variable, Multiple Groups tool. You can export your graph from the online tool, but you may want to take a screenshot instead. Instructions can be found here (I recommend the “partial screenshot” option).

Finally, we discussed in class how boxplots are great for comparing distributions of data, but maybe aren’t the best option for assessing a distributions shape. We saw this with some interesting visualizations here, which you’re welcome to check out on your own.
