Grading Papers

Today I FINALLY got around to reading all of the papers my stats students submitted on the data collection topic. They were instructed to create 4 histograms using data we collected from the class giving heights  in centimeters. I wanted to know if they could write a well-organized a paper and provide some insight on how our perception of shape, center and spread can be altered if we present the data in different ways.

I got this from one lovely paper: Distribution is the shape of the spread of data over a range of values.

Holy cow! That is very insightful! This student gets it. I love this way of thinking about distribution as shape of spread. Lovely.
