Part B Directions: Using 100 pennies, complete the following activities:
1. Group pennies by year
2. Regroup pennies into various classes by decades
3. Create a relative frequency distribution by decades (see Excerpt 7.1 from Research in Education: Evidence-Based Inquiry for a model; focus on the percent column) page 150 (3 of 29)
4. Create a cumulative frequency distribution by decades (see Excerpt 7.1 from Research in Education: Evidence-Based Inquiry for a model; focus on the percent summation column)
5. What is the relative frequency of the 3rd class?
6. What is the cumulative frequency of the 5th class?
7. Create a histogram based on the cumulative frequency distribution (see Excerpt 7.4 from Research in Education: Evidence-Based Inquiry for a model)
