Activity: Orange You Glad for Descriptive Statistics?

This is a lab or classroom activity “Oranges Are the New Statistics“(created by Kathrine Frey Frøslie) that has students peel oranges and collect data from various aspects of the experience (e.g., number of wedges, speed of peeling, weight of oranges, etc.) Students then use this data to calculate descriptive statistics such as central tendency, and graph their results. Lots of fantastic bonus content in the post as well (e.g., fun facts about oranges).
