# Statistics Project: Sampling, Standard Deviation & Z-Scores

## Overview

In this statistics project, students will begin by sampling a population to answer their own designed question. They will then use their sample to graph, find the mean and standard deviation, and illustrate their understanding of normal distribution. They will then manipulate their data to make it "normal" and, after finding new samples, analyze the associated z-score and percents of that new data.
