Task 1: Answer the following Questions


In Lab 1 Part 1 you have constructed a Histogram for the Hershey Kisses by using Excel. Think about the following questions then answer them thoroughly.

  1. Would you consider the distribution of the weights to be roughly mound-shaped? Why or why not?
  2. Is the shape of the distribution what you might have expected? Why or why not?
  3. (In other words, give a non-technical explanation as to why you might have thought that the weights from a bag of Hershey Kisses would produce a mound-shaped histogram.)
  4. If you answered 'no' to this question, explain why you should have expected it to be mound-shaped.
  5. Do you think that Hershey® collects and analyzes the same kind of data we have collected thus far? Why? Of what value could this be to them?


Task 2: Collect your own data!


The mound shaped distribution is a very common distribution. Find something other than Kisses® to collect data on that would produce a mound-shaped distribution. Also, don't use weights nor candy, make it something totally different than the Hershey Kisses. Follow the steps below.

Step 1) Think of other things you could collect data on that might produce a mound-shaped distribution (histogram). There are lots of possibilities here and there are lots of other measurements besides weight such as quantity, length, time, dollars, etc ... .

You shouldn't have to do anything that costs you money!


Step 2) Collect data on this.


Step 3) Do an analysis similar to what was done with the Hershey Kisses®. In other words, Put your data into Excel, get a Descriptive Statistics output and create a histogram. Instructions for Excel are located in the Excel & Calculator Instructions folder under Course Overview. 


Step 4) Put together a small report that explains what the data was taken from and how you collected it.
