Materials by Schools collaborating with CIRDIS

In this section you will find materials produced by schools participating in CIRDIS initiatives.

Statistics and its applications
Mirko Daniele Comparetti, a student before graduation of the Liceo Tecnologico Guglielmo Marconi in Gorgonzola (Milan), sent to us his work prepared for the final graduation exam. In the report, he studied several applications of statistics regarding physics, biological  and chemical sciences and matematics. Moreover he talked about the historical changes in the beginning of the Ninetieth Century: the crisis of classical physics, and so that of determinism and the following origin of modern physics that uses a probabilistic approaches.

The work contains the source code of a program (realized in C++) simulating the probabilistic model on which the quincunx is based.

Materials regarding the "How are we now?" school survey
Liliana Berliocchi of ITIS in Cittą di Castello has joint to the CIRDIS school survey "How are we now?" and she sent us the anthropometric data gained in her class that enriched the dataset Alessi (see the section of the survey).
