Find the longest and the shortest snow pea measurements by talking to your classmates or asking your instructor.
What is the range of snow pea length for the entire class?
Longest – Shortest = Range
_______ – _______ = _______
Describe the difference between the range of variation for a smaller sample (your measurements) and a larger sample (measurements of the entire class). This demonstrates how a small sample size is typically not representative of the entire range of variation of a species.
