Statistics

**Form Data Analysis to hypothesis testing.**This series of three projects was designed for a basic statistics course that is not calculus based. The first project has students collecting data, presenting data in histograms, and computing basic statistics on the data. On the second project, the binomial distribution is used to find the mean and variance of the random variables sampled in the first project. Furthermore, students are lead to think about how sample size affects the amount a sample mean varies from the population mean. The third project requires students to quanitify the observations made in part 2 by using confindence intervals and hypothesis testing.

**LaTeX format**: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.
