Journal Entry 7 – When You Were Born

Ask your parents about your own birth including:

1)          What time of the day were you born?

2)          How much did you weigh?

3)          How long were you?

4)          What other names did they consider for you?

5)          Did they know if you were a boy or girl before you were born?

6)          Who else (besides mom) was at the hospital (e.g., dad, siblings, etc.)?

7)          Where were you born?

Journal Entry 3 – Data on the Cost of Textbooks

Interview some of your friends or roommates and ask them what the total cost of their textbooks was for this semester (in dollars). Also note the gender and class standing (i.e., freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, graduate student, etc.) of each person you ask. Then use this data to calculate the mean, median, and mode of the cost of textbooks and try to determine if there are any differences across gender or class standing.
