Week 3: Exercise
Let's consolidate what we just learned with an exercise to play with this week.
This week's exercise#
Awesome work getting through our third week! During this week, make a totally new histogram! Here's our list of fun datasets, if you wanted to switch from last week.
Choose a dataset to play with -- you'll want to pick one with one metric whose distribution you're especially interested in. Here are a few suggestions:
look at the distribution of number of unique colors in Bob Ross paintings
look at the distribution of deaths in witch trials. Extra credit: make multiple histograms to see how this changed across centuries
look at the distribution of penguin weight. Extra credit: make multiple histograms to compare weight distributions for different species
