# Statistics Project

## Goal

The goal of this project is to demonstrate an understanding of statistical representation and analysis.

## Directions

1. Choose a topic you would be interested in finding data about (example: changes in animal populations).

2. Research and record your data (excel works great for this). You will need enough information to produce at least 4 graphs.

3. Create a dot plot, a histogram, a box plot and a scatterplot to represent different aspects of your data.

4. Analyze your data to determine:

· The mean, median and mode.

· The standard deviation.

· The distribution of data using center and spread.

· If it fits the pattern of normal distribution.

· The form, strength and direction of the relationship.

· Are there any outliers? How do they affect your data sets?

· Is your data symmetric or skewed?

· Explain the meaning of the slope and intercepts within the context of your data.

5. Compare and interpret differences in two or more sets of data.

6. Create a presentation using Emaze to represent your data.
