Flying Helicopters in AP Statistics

We created and tested helicopters in AP Stats to gather data to practice finding confidence intervals.  My students enjoyed creating the airplanes and gathering the data.  It's amazing what a meaningful, fun activity like this can do for a class (especially during 3rd quarter when it is cold and snowy outside).  Here is an awesome video of it edited by one of my students!

  1. You seem like such a fun teacher! Your students are lucky to have you - especially because you DO things in class instead of rely on the book.
