Question

MAT201 SLP01

Your specific assignment for this week is to select a type of quantitative data to collect from your own life. Some examples of data to collect could be:

• How long it takes to drive to work each day.
• How many hours of TV shows you watch each day.
• Number of phone calls you get each day.

In a brief paper, describe the data you are going to collect. Start collecting data today so you have can have at least 10 observations, preferably more.

Note: you only have to choose one variable, and then collect 10 days worth of data on that one variable. For example, if your variable is how long it takes you to drive to work each day, simply record how long it takes you to get to work for 10 days. Save this date for use in remaining SLP assignments.

Submit your paper to CourseNet for grading containing the above information by the end of this module.

Session Long Project assignment expectations:

Use information from the modular background readings as well as any good quality resource you can find. Please cite all sources and provide a reference list at the end of your paper.

The following items will be assessed in particular:

1. Your ability to explain the basic logic of probability theory

2. Your ability to identify the meaning of independent and dependent events

MAT201 SLP02

Welcome to the second SLP, using the data you have collected in Module 1 please do the following:

Calculate the mean, median, and mode.

Are these numbers higher or lower than you would have expected?

Which of these measures of central tendency do you think most accurately describes the lifestyle variable you are looking at?

Write a brief paper pages with your calculations and the answers to these questions.

Submit your paper to CourseNet for grading by the end of this module.

The following items will be assessed in particular:

1. Your ability to choose the most appropriate measure of central tendency for a particular set of data.

2. Your ability to calculate the mean, median, and mode from a set of data.

3. Your ability to explain the difference between the mean, median, and mode.

MAT201 SLP03

Welcome to the third SLP, using Excel, prepare a frequency distribution from the data you collected in Module 1.

Calculate the Standard Deviation of your data.

Is this a normal distribution?

What are the implications?

The following items will be assessed in particular:

1. Your ability to describe a normal distribution as evidenced by a bell shaped curve.

2. Your ability to describe the information provided by the Standard Deviation.

MAT201 SLP04

Welcome to module four's SLP. For this module, continue to collect data for five days.

Is the larger sample changing anything?

Is your mean increasing or decreasing?

Do you think the current sample you have is enough to paint an accurate picture, or do you need a much larger sample?

Submit your paper to CourseNet for grading by the end of this module.

Session Long Project assignment expectations:

Use information from the modular background readings as well as any good quality resource you can find. Please cite all sources and provide a reference list at the end of your paper.

The following items will be assessed in particular:

1. Your ability to identify situations when sampling is appropriate.

2. Your ability to describe the process of selecting and evaluating a sample.

MAT201 SLP05

Welcome to the final SLP, for this assignment you have a choice of either using ANOVA or using regression.

1. Divide your data in half, your first 8 observations and your last 7 observations. Then use ANOVA to test to see if there is a significant difference between the two halves of your data. This list of .org/">Webpages that Perform Statistical Calculations has several ANOVA calculators.

2. Take your data and arrange it in the order you collected it. Count the total number of observations you have, and label this number N. Then create another set of data starting from one and increasing by one until you reach N. For example, if you have 10 observations, then your new set of data would be (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10). This set of data is called a time series. Run a regression using your original set of data as your dependent variable, and your time series as an independent variable. Use the .hofstra.edu/faculty/Stefan_Waner/newgraph/regressionframes.html">simple regression calculation page to calculate your regression. Write a paper reporting your results and any conclusions that can be reached with it.

Session Long Project assignment expectations:

Use information from the modular background readings as well as any good quality resource you can find. Please cite all sources and provide a reference list at the end of your paper.

The following items will be assessed in particular:

1. Your ability to identify when the Least Squares method should be used.

2. Your ability to describe ANOVA and identify when the ANOVA method should be used.
