We are conducting an experiment in a high school Physics class. The students are repeating experiments with a cart rolling down an incline, finding the acceleration, then changing the angle of incline and finding how that affects the acceleration. We would like them to compare their experimental value to the theoretical and see if they are within the error. We would like to use more than the standard deviation, but not do a full blown error analysis. The uncertainties will be very small because the equipment is very precise (optical sensors). Thank you.
