Introduction: The purpose of this study was to find students thoughts and opinions on school shootings and how we should be responding to them. This report will show student's knowledge on guns and school shootings by asking about how many people they know who own them, the removal of students after these events, and the number of school shootings they know about. In addition to this, it also shows student opinions on judiciary processes and government allowances and intervention on guns in schools.
Survey Questions:
1. What gender do you identify with?
2. How old are you?
3. What type of high school did you graduate from?
4. Approximately how many friends do you know who were raised in a house with guns?
5. Do you know of any student who was removed from a public or private school setting and placed in home schooling after a wellpublicized school shooting occurred?
6. Approximately how many school shootings do you remember off the top of your head?
7. Do you think a shooter under the age of 18 should be tried as an adult?
8. Do you think that a school shooter should be executed?
9. Do you think concealed weapons should be allowed on campuses?
10. Do you think the government is doing enough to protect children in schools?
In this sample of Statistics students, 72.7% of those surveyed were female and 27.3% were male. A bar graph displaying the students ages is shown, highlighting the large difference between the two genders. This distribution of gender vaguely correlates with the average gender difference between the entire student body of Flagler College. The majority of the students are females. The mode response is female because it is categorical data and most of the data options chosen were “female”.
Summary statistics:

In this sample of statistics students, the age of students is surveyed and represented in a Histogram graph because it is a numerical, widely spread data set. Because this graph is both unimodal and heavily right skewed with outliers, the median should be used to find the center and the Interquartile Range should be used to find the spread. The typical value for a students age shown on the graph is 18.
In this sample of Statistics students, 72 %of those surveyed were public schooled, 26% were private schooled, and 3% were homeschooled. A pie chart displaying the students schooling is shown, due to the obvious differences that are easily understandable to the eye. The mode response is public schooling because it is categorical data and most of the data options chosen were “public school”.
Summary statistics:

In this sample of statistics students, the number of friends raised with guns each student has is surveyed and represented in a histogram because it is a numerical data set that has an obvious sloping pattern. Because this graph is both unimodal and right skewed with outliers, the median should be used to find the center and the IQR should be used to find the spread. The typical value for number of friends with guns known shown on the graph is 4. The outliers occur because there are different meanings people have for the term “friends” and 25 is the upper limit.
In this sample of Statistics students, 88.67 % of those surveyed said they did not know someone removed from school after a shooting and 11.33% did. A pie chart displaying the students experiences is shown, due to the obvious differences that are easily understandable to the eye. The mode response is yes because it is categorical data and most of the data options chosen were “yes”.
Summary statistics:

In this sample of statistics students, the school shootings remembered is surveyed and represented in a histogram because it is numerical data that has a wide spread.. Because this graph is both skewed right and has outliers, the median should be used to find the center and the IQR should be used to find the spread. The typical value for school shootings remembered shown on the graph is 5.
In this sample of Statistics students, 122 of those surveyed said they think the minor should be tried as an adult and 28 did not. A bar graph displaying the students experiences is shown, due to the obvious differences that are easily understandable to the eye. The mode response is yes because it is categorical data and most of the data options chosen were “yes”.
In this sample of Statistics students, 56.67% of those surveyed said they did not think the shooter should be executed and 44.33% did. A pie chart displaying the students experiences is shown, because it more easily translates the idea of showing how close support is for both idea. The mode response is no because it is categorical data and most of the data options chosen were “no”.
In this sample of Statistics students, 82% of those surveyed said they think that concealed weapons should not be carried in schools and 28 wanted them to be carried. A pie chart displaying the students experiences is shown, due to the obvious differences that are easily understandable to the eye. The mode response is no because it is categorical data and most of the data options chosen were “no”.
In this sample of Statistics students, 130 of those surveyed said they think that the government is not doing enough to prevent school shootings and that 20 believe that they are. A bar graph displaying the students experiences is shown, due to the towering difference that claims wants for more support. The mode response is yes because it is categorical data and most of the data options chosen were “yes”.
