Statistics is a branch of mathematics dealing with the collection, analysis, interpretation, presentation, and organization of data. A statistical question is one that can be answered by collecting data, where there is variability. Examples: How many minutes do 6th graders typically spend on homework? How many siblings do kids at PVMS have? How many pets do people in Colorado typically have? Non Examples: What is your favorite color? How old is Mr. H? How many pets does Ms. Moore have?
