Indonesia Topic Paper (due Thursday, Aug 14 at 3:00 am): Please submit a second draft of your 1-2 page paper by email.

Measurement Write-Up (due Thursday, Aug 14 at 3:00 am): Please present your caliper measurements in an appropriate format (i.e. a spreadsheet) and write a few paragraphs about your data and the process of taking measurements. Some questions to consider are: What measurements did you take, and how useful do you think these measurements are for studying variation? How much variation did you see in your measurements, and what are some causes of the variation? If you were to run a larger experiment studying variation in, for instance, human beings or Samsung phones, how would you approach it? What measurements would you take and how would you make sure that they were as unbiased as possible?
