In this activity, students collect data from an experiment designed to investigate whether or not the ability to name the color of printed ink is challenged when the word written with the ink is the name of a color. Students are asked to design the experiment to investigate this. Numeric summaries (mean and five-number summary) and comparative boxplots are used to summarize the collected data. Conclusions are drawn about the difficulty of naming a color when it is displayed in this manner.
