Earthquakes and the Poisson Distribution

Project Overview

This RWLO provides practice using the Poisson Distribution using real-world data, namely the number of earthquakes per hour.

Students will collect data from the U.S. Geological Survey website, construct a frequency distribution and histogram, calculate descriptive statistics, and find Poisson probabilities.
