__NOTES__

** This "experiment" requires interaction
by the user to "generate" data. If a user "blows off" this interaction,
it will be readily apparent in the results. The exercise is not designed
to provide any test of speed, accuracy, or attention to detail, and should
not be graded or scored in those terms. The pedagogical value of
the experiment is independent of the care or sloppiness with which "data"
is collected. In fact, a student will likely benefit from comparing
the results of different parts of the exercise performed with varying levels
of care.**

** In "assignment" mode, the user
is required to perform the tedious calculations necessary for statistical
analysis. I believe that a student gains a better understanding of
the method by performing these calculations. The benefit, however,
drops off rapidly with repetition and the exercise quickly becomes "busy
work". Modern calculators perform these statistical calculations
with ease. Students will benefit greatly from learning to use these
functions of their calculators. I strongly recommend the use of a
calculator in conjunction with this exercise.**
