Create a Biased Coin

In this assignment, you will learn about NHST—Null Hypothesis Significance Testing
—by trying to create a biased “coin” and then deciding how to prove that it’s biased.
You will also learn about Bayesian statistics—and how sometimes it gives results that
are very similar to the old-fashioned NHST approach, but not always.
The “coins” in question are anything you can find that is coin-like: actual coins,
plastic checkers, the metal lid of a glass jar… any round, flat disk that can be flipped or
spun. It’s your job to bias this coin (or “coin”). Then you’ll have to explain how you
proved that it is biased.
