Statistic Research Paper Exemplars - Students were asked to conduct an investigation into a question of interest, ideally linked to senior project. They were applying correlations, chi-squares, and normal distributions. This link contains some of the better work done.

Boon The Moon Jellyfish - This is a proof of two questions, the Tautochrone and Brachistochrone problems Students read and adapted these proofs, wrestling with complex math in the process, to demonstrate that the solution to both problems is a cycloid (written in parmetric form). We then turned it into a jellyfish for obvious reasons.

The "Becca Bekah Lawson Dawson Derek Allee, Maybe Kyle a Little Bit But Certainly Not Michaelan Theorem": This is a rigorous proof of an extension to the Limit Comparison test for determining convergence of an infinite series. Students noted a repetitive pattern in proving convergence (a standard Calc 2 problem set), hypothesized the proof, justified it logically, and then created a formal proof of their work. It has then been reviewed and would be suitable for publication.

Standardized Testing Investigation - The senior statistics class built a website that contains their research, as well as a presentation around the nuts and bolts of standardized testing, wit ha view towards framing a discussion around what Animas should do t improve assessment as a school.

College Consultancy Worksheet- This is a spreadsheet built by students that allows you to calculate your expected student loan. Feel free to make a copy and try it out yourself.

Income Inequality statistics project.

The first piece of student work, necessary to do real research, is a spreadsheet that will take income data from a frequency chart and compute income equality metrics from it. Students have studied variety of metrics, including the simple inner quartile range, the more advanced 20/20 ratio and Palma ratios, the Hoover index, and the Theil index. Also included are simple descriptive statistics, mean, median, and standard deviation.
