This year, I will.....
Consider this "fact": 77% of the New Year’s resolutions made are adhered to for a week or less.
Task 1: Do a survey of your students and colleagues to see if their "Resolutions" pattern fits the above data.
Task 2: Given the above statement, is it possible to compute the half-life for a New Year's Resolution (assuming it is an exponential situation)? Explain.
