AP Statistics Assignment for 3/12

Our Unit 5 test is tomorrow.

  • You got a review packet in class today. Check your answers from the textbook review and work on the additional practice problems you can find there.
  • Work on some more of the review problems from pages 562-568. I can provide additional answers for you to look at (for security and copyright reasons, I cannot post them online).
  • As always, post here or email me with any other questions you may have.

AP Statistics Assignment for 3/4

We finished our discussion of Chapter 20 today. For a poetic, metaphorical take on the content of the chapter, check out the The Story of Sad Sack (and its companion video here).

For answers to the celebrity mannequin example you got at the end of class, see here.

For homework tonight, please finish reading chapter 20 (pages 527-535) and then work on exercises 8, 11, 16, 29, 34

AP Statistics Assignment for 3/1

Chapter 20 is like an extended “What can go wrong?” section from the end of each other chapter in our textbook. In short, even though we might do everything correctly—choose an appropriately random and representative sample of our population, gather our data properly, analyze it accurately, and correctly conduct an appropriate hypothesis test—we might still be wrong. If you missed class (or would like a re-explanation on the rather tricky circumstances that these errors might happen), check out this video. For a slightly more metaphorical take on this subject, watch The Story of Sad Sack and its companion video here.

This weekend, read the first part of chapter 20, pages 516-526 (we will have a reading quiz about the Just Checking questions from this section), then do exercises 4, 5, 7, 13, 17
