The statistics classes at Heritage Academy conducted an experiment with paper helicopters. They predicted which helicopter would land faster, the short rotors or the long rotors. Students divided up into groups to create their helicopters. One student dropped the helicopters and the other timed the decent. The copters were dropped at random determined by the toss of a penny. The results showed that the length of the rotors is statistically significant; the short rotors landed 2 seconds faster on average.
