Day 53... Twisted Words

Today we started Linear Regression, so the students gathered data on tongue twisters. They time how long it takes to say the tongue twister up to 8 times. I love this lab because it always causes some giggling fits, but it also gives some very linear data and is a great introduction to what the slope really means.


  1. How does this work? Do you give them the twister? or to they choose their own? Does It really matter?

  2. I gave them some to choose from or they could use their own favorite. It doesn't really matter as long as they use the same twister for all of their data.
