Scholarship Statistics

By Mark Hooper | Posted: Sunday June 18, 2017

What better to do on a Sunday morning than do some Scholarship Stats!

Last weekend the boys undertook the challenge of a Triangle Sensory Taste Test. This is a technique used by scientists and statisticians to see if the difference between two food items or drinks is actually able to be 'sensed' or are differences down to lucky chance?

This year the boys chose two brands of Lemon Lime and Bitters and two brands of jelly beans to try and find a difference. Using some statistical techniques (hypothesis testing), the boys will follow up this week to see if enough evidence exists to reject the premise that chance played a part in spotting any differences.
