Lab 6: Melting Away

Background: In class, students were asked to place a chip on their tongues and hold it to the roof of their mouth until it completely melted. The time in seconds was recorded for each individual.

Specify the two chip types for later reference.

chip type 1: (e.g., butterscotch)
chip type 2: (e.g., semi-sweet)

Goals:In this lab we want to

  • Investigate the melting times of two types of chips using a “matched-pairs design."
  • Analyze matched pairs data.
  • Consider the potential benefits of paired designs.
