IQ Tests  What's Your Hypothesis? (.doc) 
See Word document 
Students will take part in an online IQ test, and then take a brief survey to record their results and answer a couple of other questions. They will invite others to do so as well. The students will then access the results of the survey and use them to formulate a conjecture regarding IQ scores and possibly another variable. They will use an appropriate hypothesis test to test their conjecture.
