**1. ****WRITE DOWN 30 NUMBERS BETWEEN 1 AND 100 (NO REPEATS)**

**2. ****LOTTERIES USE RANDOM NUMBERS. SO, USE THE RANDOM NUMBERS PAGE BELOW (OR IF YOU USE EXCEL USE "RANDBETWEEN") TO GENERATE 30 RANDOM NUMBERS BETWEEN 1 AND 100 (AGAIN, NO REPEATS). IF YOU USE THE TABLE, START ANYWHERE BUT THEN REMEMBER TO USE A SYSTEMATIC APPROACH TO PICK THE 30 NUMBERS (EXPLAIN YOUR "SYSTEM"). **

**3. ****CALCULATE THE MEAN, VARIANCE AND STANDARD DEVIATION FOR BOTH SETS OF NUMBERS**

**NOW, LET'S SEE WHAT THESE SETS LOOK LIKE. **

**4. ****GROUP BOTH SETS OF NUMBERS INTO THE TYPICAL RANGES OF 1-10, 11-20,**

**ETC.**

**5. ****HAND DRAW A DISPLAY FOR EACH SET OF NUMBERS (YOUR CHOICE) THAT YOU FEEL BEST SHOWS THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN YOUR NUMBER PICKS AND THE RANDOM NUMBERS. **

**SO, HOW DO YOU INTERPRET WHAT YOU SEE FROM THE STATISTICS YOU CALCULATED (MEAN, ETC.) AND THE VISUAL DEPICTION OF THE TWO SETS OF DATA?**
