How faithful is old faithful? Statistical thinking: a story of variation and prediction. (English)
Math. Teach. (Reston) 95, No. 4, 252-259 (2002).
The authors of this article have found that data sets from the Old Faithful geyser in Yellowstone Park furnish a rich context for introducing such important aspects of statistical thinking as the central role of variation and the importance of asking our students what they would predict. In this article, we first discuss the context of the data, next present a classroom exploration of the data, and then discuss the nature of statistical thinking as it pertains to this Old Faithful data set.
