Descriptive Statistics in our Research Methods

by: Courtney Ellis ‘02, AP Psych Teacher
Shorecrest Upper School AP Psychology students worked on identifying the measures of central tendency and measures of variation amongst Skittles bags. Skittles brand says their bags are 20% of each color so the class also worked together to identify if that was true and how having a larger sample size could help them get closer to those percentages. The students also shared strong feelings about which colors tasted the best.
