Students form research questions, gather data at home and share it in class. They prepare graphs and statistics and answer questions which start highly-directed and become more open. They are prompted to be critical of the results and make suggestions for further research.
This is a very engaging More… and successful activity. It is easy to mark. It usually results in quite deep discussion about statistical research.
