Name:  Frisbee Data

Abstract:  This is an experiment to test the accuracy of three different types of Frisbees.  On Friday, April 13, 2007 they conducted the experiment in the Pine Grove using willing Hope College students who were passing through from 12:30pm to 2:00pm and managed to get 146 participants. They randomly assigned participants to use one of three types of Frisbees and then had them throw it at a light post 20 feet away. Participants also filled out a quick questionnaire so the group could track other variables that could have a possible affect on the accuracy of a Frisbee throw.
