Whirlybirds

Students measure to the nearest centimeter, and predict the frequency of an event. In this statistics lesson, students participate in a simulation of a parachute jump competition by making paper Whirlybirds, and then dropping them towards a target on the floor. They measure the distance from the point where the Whirlybird lands to the target in centimeter intervals. They analyze the data to determine the frequency of a parachutist hitting a target.
