Day 5: Frog Flippin’ Fun
I really am hoping to use more engaging activities for data collection this year in my AP Statistics course. I found this activity at Stat.Teacher.Blog and thought what a great idea for a fun way to collect quantitative data. But where was I going to find the actual frogs and pond? This summer I was shopping at my local dollar store (I always check out the toys since I’m a kid at heart!) and lo and behold I squealed with delight…there was the whole Jump Frogs for a $1 each. Whoot-whoot!! (insert near cartwheels down the aisles). So today was the day for data collection. We talked about how far away from the pond frogs were to leap (experimental design seeds were planted) and the fun began. Analyzing the results tomorrow.
