 I love the clever title of this video and the real life example that Ms. Castaneda incorporates. This keeps the video quite engaging for the viewers. I really like her explanation. For me, statistics can be confusing but I think this video is clear and easy to follow. Overall, I like this video a lot.

I like the way Ms. Castaneda used a real life example to show standard deviation which is both interesting and engaging. Her work was organized and easy to follow. It was a little difficult to see the values on the graph but that is not entirely necessary to the overall problem. It would have been helpful to have the concepts of standard deviation explained at the beginning of the video.
