|IQ Tests - What's Your Hypothesis? (.doc)
||See Word document
||Students will take part in an on-line IQ test, and then take a brief survey to record their results and answer a couple of other questions. They will invite others to do so as well. The students will then access the results of the survey and use them to formulate a conjecture regarding IQ scores and possibly another variable. They will use an appropriate hypothesis test to test their conjecture.
