  • 10A.G - Box & Whiskers

    Describe similarities and differences in two data sets that are represented by box and whiskers plots.
  • 10A.G - No Bias Allowed

    Analyze the differences in various graphical representations of the same data set, and discuss the possible bias present in the graphs.
  • 10B.G - Which Pizza?

    Plan a follow up study to one that has been already done in class to determine the favorite pizzas.
  • 10C.G - Matching Pairs
