Complete the Chapter 2 Investigative Task tonight. Note again that the scoring rubric is included in that file; use that to make sure your response follows the four C’s: Concise, Complete, Correct, and in Context. Your response should be completed in a Google Document and submitted to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the beginning of class tomorrow. Make sure that you allow for editing when you share it with me (don’t leave it as view only)
Per the AP Statistics Course Expectations, please name your file appropriately. The file name should have the format “LastName.FirstName.Ch2InvTask”. For example, mine would be “Kirk.Benjamin.Ch2InvTask“.
If you’re confused about any of this, or are having trouble submitting your work, please email me at the above address (or at email@example.com) or leave a comment here.
Finally, don’t forget about the clarifications I made in class:
- The statistics given are numbers of death penalty sentences out of murder convictions. Every single one of the 667 cases described was a murder conviction, of which 115 resulted in a death penalty sentence. Your task is to determine whether the death penalty sentencing rate is associated with race.
- References to the “defendant” indicate the individual convicted of murder. References to “victim” indicate the individual the defendant was convicted of killing.
