Spaghetti Investigation

User Description:
The aim of this mathematical report is to statistically evaluate samples of spaghetti in regards to the variance in mass, to make conclusions on the type of spaghetti the mass values represent. An arbitrary amount of spaghetti sticks were distributed among a classroom of students, this would become their sample of spaghetti. The mass of each strand of spaghetti within the sample was measured using a balance in (g), recording the data in Excel.

Sample Text:
An arbitrary amount of spaghetti sticks were distributed among a classroom of students, this would become their sample of spaghetti. The mass of each strand of spaghetti within the sample was measured using a balance in (g), recording the data in Excel. The data of mass from each student’s sample was combined, forming the “class data” of spaghetti mass from 22/23 samples of spaghetti from the same packet with a total of 757 values. A supplied sample of data containing 218 values of mass was given by the teacher with no knowledge of its origin (what type of spaghetti the values represented). Using statistical values such as mean, median and mode as well as standard deviation to measure the centre and spread of ...

Throughout the class, each student was given numerous straws of spaghetti as part of their sample. The task was then to measure each strand’s mass (g) – Continuous Variable, recording and collecting the data. Later on, each individual data set was shared among a majority of the class (22/23 students) to create a comprehensive set of figures containing data from almost the entire packet of spaghetti. A supplied sample data of 218 sticks was also given from the teacher’s behalf. In this assessment report, we are now given the opportunity to investigate and compare the statistics of our data, to the class’ and to the supplied data. To draw conclusions and establish opinions, a wide range of statistical methods will be used throughout the investigation. Basic statistical devices such as mean, median and mode ranging to complex devices such as standard deviation will all be used to compare center and spread statistics. Histograms and other graphs created using various applications will be used to demonstrate this information. Mark Received: A

Summary statistics give us an idea about where the centre of the distribution is and how the distribution is spread out. The data needs to be in ordered form to calculate the summary statistics.
