Not only did we finish our research and analysis for Painted Turtle, but we actually went to Painted Turtle to hand-deliver the completed report!! We even did a little painting while we were there (pictures below)! For our last meeting of the year we had a pizza party and played Catch Phrase! This was a great end to a wonderful semester. See you next fall!
<![CDATA[Upcoming Events]]>Sun, 15 Feb 2015 01:09:07 GMThttp://cmustatisticsclub.weebly.com/blog/upcoming-eventsPicture
We have some very exciting events planned for this semester. 

At the last meeting we picked out a design for our nerdy club shirts! Melissa will be finalizing details in the next few weeks and they are going to be awesome! 

We are also looking forward to the Math 5K Race coming up in March 2015. Let's all work together to make this a grand success. More details to come on that. 

Also, bring your laptop to meetings whenever possible because this semester we will be working on analyzing results to our Painted Turtle Surveys. A big thanks goes out to all members who distributed the surveys! The number of responses was phenomenal!! 

See you next Tuesday!

<![CDATA[Happy New Year!]]>Wed, 21 Jan 2015 23:21:48 GMThttp://cmustatisticsclub.weebly.com/blog/happy-new-year

There is so much to look forward to this semester! We want to welcome all the new e-board members: Joanna as President, Melissa as Vice President, Emily as Treasurer and Ben as Secretary! This is an exciting new crew and we hope to continue the momentum we started in the fall with lots of fun and activities this semester.

Next week bring your laptops because we will be working on and sending out the Painted Turtle surveys to classmates and friends in Mount Pleasant. Don't forget, we are meeting every
Tuesday from 5:00 PM until 5:30 PM in Pearce Hall 107. After we collect data from the survey, we will analyze the data and see what we can discover. We will then report back to Painted Turtle with our findings. Your effort this semester really counts and is truly a service to the local community!

Think about nerdy t-shirt designs for Statistics Club this semester! Bring your favorite designs to club and we will work together to make the nerdiest shirt on campus. 

See you next week!!

<![CDATA[Teamwork]]>Wed, 26 Nov 2014 17:22:02 GMThttp://cmustatisticsclub.weebly.com/blog/teamwork
Elections for new positions will be held Tuesday, December 2 during our last meeting of the semester. Think about which position sounds like a good fit for you and what responsibilities you would like to take on. I think our main goal this coming year will be to increase membership while developing a very fun and worthwhile program for our current members. There is a sample constitution on the "About Page" that has some ideas for possible officer responsibilities. Think about if these are applicable to Stats Club. Let's have a meeting next semester dedicated to the development of a constitution that will guide Stats Club members for years to come. If we all work together, we can accomplish so much.
<![CDATA[Current Survey Project]]>Wed, 12 Nov 2014 00:14:09 GMThttp://cmustatisticsclub.weebly.com/blog/current-survey-project
This semester we worked on helping out a local business in creating a survey to find out who their main customer base is. Painted Turtle Pottery Studio wants to know what they can do better to attract customers to the studio for a fun, relaxing afternoon. We just wrapped up the survey creation this week. We will finalize the format of the survey and distribute the survey to classmates starting next week. Come next semester, hopefully we will have gathered enough data to start analyzing the results!

<![CDATA[Little Caesars Fundraiser]]>Wed, 05 Nov 2014 04:01:24 GMThttp://cmustatisticsclub.weebly.com/blog/little-caesars-fundraiserPicture
Hey, Everyone! This November we are selling Little Caesars pizza kits, cookie dough, and wings! Ask everyone you know if they want some. Our goal is to sell 5 kits each to reach a profit of $250 for both Stats Club and Gamma Iota Sigma. Maybe we could sell even more. What do you think? Go big or go home, right!? I mean, who doesn't want their whole freezer filled with pizza kits and cookie dough? Click Little Caesar for more details. Orders are due November 25th to Sarah. Please collect the money when the orders are placed with the individual families. Thanks so much! Pizza it up!

What's the probability that every Stat's Club member will sell at least 5 items? What's the probability that Stat's Club will reach their goal of selling 100 items? Who knows? Let's just make it happen!!
