Choose a Project

The project list below includes many question ideas. You can choose one of these questions or think of a different question that your group would like to pursue.

If your group wants to research a different topic, think of a question that interests you, and then make sure you will be able to collect numerical data for the question. You can use the Internet to collect the data. Here are some ideas:

  • Sports: What is the typical height of an NBA player?
  • Nature: How tall is a typical sequoia tree?
  • Presidents: How old is a typical president upon entering office?
  • States: How many people live in a typical state?

In your group, choose a question for your statistics project.
