I OBJECTIVE To learn the concepts of mean value, standard deviation, and significant figures, and practice calculating propagation of error. II PROCEDURE Using a wooden stick, 30 measurements of a table's width and length (60 total) were estimated with the knowledge that the stick was 20 cm. No marks or lines were used on the stick or the table to provide any sort of extra amount of precision in estimates. The measurements were completely dependent upon the use of one hand and the measurer's own vision for judgements of approximation. Ten measurements were made by each of our three team members to add a degree of diversity in values. The measurements were recorded in Graphical Analysis and the statistics
