This is a project that I’ve used in one form or fashion with my AP Statistics classes. You can do it in pieces throughout the year or do it all after the exam. Students benefit by choosing a topic of interest, downloading data and creating histograms, generating descriptive statistics, regression equations and inference procedures to create a 21st century portfolio project that is uniquely theirs. All kinds of things can come up for them in this project – expect a range of outcomes.
Please post a comment or question for more info or for guidance on implementation options. Feel free to email me for a word version, if desired!
