half a minute for science!
A friend is teaching a class on data analysis, and she is building a simple and rough data set for the class to examine, and to spur discussion. You can contribute in half a minute! Here's how:
- get a stopwatch or other sort of timer (whatever device you're reading this on probably has such a thing).
- start the timer, but don't look at it.
- wait for what you think is 30 seconds, and then look at the timer
- how many actual seconds elapsed?
You can send me your results by e-mail, (i suspect you can find my address if you're reading this blog). Please put "half a minute for science" in the subject line, and make sure you include:
- actual seconds elapsed
- age in years
