Categorical Data Activity

This activity will allow students to familiarize themselves with technology and its use in calculating marginal, conditional, and joint distributions, as well as making conclusions from these tabular and graphical displays. The corresponding data set 'Pizza Data' is located on the title via a .txt file. Before attempting this activity students should have a basic background in graphical displays of quantitative data, contingency tables and joint/marginal/conditional distributions. Otherwise, this is a nice activity for a more advanced statistics class.
