    OK, guys, help me out here, please. This question is for a project in a stats class I'm taking.

    In an average week, how many hours do you spend dancing (rounded to the nearest hour)? Include: lessons, group classes, practicing, social dances, competition. (Did I miss anything, lol?)

    Thanks in advance!

    Edit to add: I need at least 50 responses, so...PLEASE RESPOND!!! :-D

    11-12 depending on several variables (sometimes I practice longer, sometimes I leave the party early, etc.)

    Typical week: 11 hours
    This week: 4 hours (maybe a bit more; I'm not sure how much dancing I will do on Saturday).

    What is your course about?
    I'm currently studying stats myself. My next assignment is looking at the Shipman (UK doctor/serial killer) data, and writing a report on whether he could have been detected earlier by statistical process control.

    B.S. basic stats class that I'm taking, b/c it's been so long since I've had stats that I don't remember it, and I need to take the classes after this one (econometrics and regression stuff and blah blah blah) for work. Unfortunately, this class isn't really doing what I need it to do. Thank goodness I have my old textbooks.

    I seem to remember something about taking billiard balls out of bags and Gaussian Curves,
    yet stats fails to take into account Sods Law and the argument that if there is a prize behind one of three doors and you pick one of the others then if one is opened the chances of you winning is improved if change your choice to the other remaining door.

    Baffling :confused:
    Our maths teacher was a psychopath; if you did something wrong he used to slam his hand down on a desk and shout "NO!" so loud that you could hear him three classrooms away.

    I once impressed him by solving an A level question with O level maths.

    Obviously I should have been studying dance not maths but such are the whimes of the Fates

    Lol. And to think that I actually like stats.

    I was looking something up online the other day, and was half excited, half depressed to run across a particular word (heteroskedasticity). Excited b/c it rang bells and I remember learning that in school, half derpressed b/c I didn't remember what it was.

    It's just sad b/c this class is being taught so poorly.

    Not enough. That is to say, about 7.

    I'm going to say 10 on average; however, that's highly variable.
