Likely Letters is a statistics and probability project that requires students to use experimental probability to determine the letters with the highest frequency of use in written English. The students differentiate between theoretical and experimental probability, make predictions, collect and organize data, and analyze their results to discover which letters of the alphabet are used the most.
