A work week:

MathXL for Schhol CHi-Square Assignment

Investigative task (Due Wednesday)

Moodle Quiz: Due Thursday by 2:30

No HW over break.

**Monday**

Learning Target:* We will be able to conduct an One-Way ANOVA analysis to test the difference between 3 or more means.*

HO <link>

You will need to follow this <link> to the Hannaford’s website.

We will need to use this ANOVA Calculator for today’s work <link>

There will be a MathXL assignment about this work, but you are not quite ready to start it.

Watch this video <link> for Wednesday. Complete these questions <Link>

**Tuesday**

Most of you are on a field trip.

**Wednesday**

Review from Monday. A couple of practice problems: A spreadsheet <link>

Using StatCrunch to perform an ANOVA analysis and a Post Hoc test

Exercises.

**Thursday**

In class:

Practice with ANOVA Paper Based + MathXL

**Friday**

No school for you.

Monday

In class:

Learning Target: *We will be able to conduct tests of significance, construct confidence intervals to make inferences about the differences between two populations.*

Practice from last week.

There are two MathXL assignments due by Sunday night at Midnight. For today, I am advising you to work on the MathXL > Inference for Two Proportions

HW:

Practice Investigative task 1. You do not have to complete a full report but you do need to have addressed every part. <My Work>

In class: if you completed the practice investigative task, get it stamped and check out my answers in Moodle.

Same as Monday

Finish MathXL Inference for Two Proportions and move onto MathXL > Two Means Inference

HW:

Complete the Practice Investigative Task 2. Again, you do not need to complete a full report, just make sure that you have addressed all of the elements. <My Work>

**Wednesday**

The MOM exercise set

HW:

You picked up the Graded Investigative Task in class, review it be ready to ask questions in class tomorrow.

Here is a copy of the handout

Here is a link to a spreadsheet containing the data <link>

**Thursday**

Looking at College Award Letter: Loans

Learning Target:* We will be able to conduct a significant test to test for any difference between the means of two independent populations.*

HO

**Friday**

Learning Target: *We will be able to conduct significance tests and confidence intervals comparing the differences between two proportions.*

Here is a < link >to collect the stock market data:

**Monday**

We will be able to conduct a significance test about a mean when we know the population STD DEV.

HO

HW

Two Exercises Solutions to Two Problems

**Tuesday**

Practice

Finishing the two problems + working on MathXL For School> Significance Testing Pop Std Dev Known Due Thursday night at midnight. This does contain some required review from the last couple of weeks.

Wednesday

Learning Targets for the next few days:

- Understand when to use t-procedures for a single sample and how they differ from the z-procedures covered earlier

- Understand what a t-distribution is and how it differs from a normal distribution. <link>
- Know how to check whether the underlying assumptions for a t- test or t-confidence interval are reasonably satisfied.
- Be able to calculate a t-confidence interval for a population mean.
- Be able to test a population mean with a t-test. Be able to calculate the t-test statistic and to determine the p-value as an area under a t-density curve.

Today we will watch this video <link>

We will learn how to use StatCrunch to test to see if the small sample could have come from a Normally distributed parent population

We will use this StatCrunch File <link>

We will also learn how to use StatCrunch to run a test of significance

**Monday**

In Class

- Learning Target:
*We will be able to conduct a significance test for statistical significance for a single proportion.* - Data Collection Activity
- Test Single Proportions Notes

HW

- Quiz in Moodle on Confidence intervals. This is due by 2:30 on Thursday
- LTT Chapters 14 and 15 100+ word reflection in Moodle>Reading About Statistics. (This will give some people on a beach something to read 🙂 This is also due Thursday
- Optional: People going for an “A” will read SMTW Chapter 19 pp 493-499 and take notes.

I am assessing how well you can:

- Understand statistics as a process for making inferences about population parameters based on a random sample from that population.
- Define a random variable for a quantity of interest by assigning a numerical value to each event in a sample space; graph the corresponding probability distribution using the same graphical displays as for data distributions.
- Analyze decisions and strategies using probability concepts

In addition to Running Start objectives around estimating population parameters.

- Take a look at the investigative task.
- Time to work on it.
- Your final report is due Monday @ the start of class.
