This Statistics 100 project has students develop an interesting question and analyze it with either an existing dataset or an original study. Students create a poster and display their results in a setting that approximates an academic conference.
This open-ended project sends groups of students to interview non-profit or community organizations dealing with racial, ethnic or migration issues. Groups write final papers integrating their own and other groups' experiences, in addition to the class readings.
