Unformatted text preview: Study guide, exam 1 STA 270 Daugherty Terms, concepts and skills required: Descriptive Statistics and inferentiai Statistics Numerical, discrete , continuous, and categoricai data types Calculate and interpret relative frequency. Define and use the term frequency distribution. Use reiative
frequencies to calcuiate proportions. Know how to construct and describe bar charts, pie charts, stem and leaf displays, histograms, boxplots,
scatterpiots Know the difference between an observational study and an experimental study
Define and use the terms sample and population
Be able to identify obvious cases of sampiing bias. Define a sirnpie random sample ofsize n. Calculate the sample mean, trimmed mean, median, variance, standard deviation, quartiles, IQR, z~
scores,sampie proportion, outliers, correiation, least squares line, slope and intercept and interpret
those vaiues. Know the difference between a sampie mean and a population mean. Know the
mathematical notation for everything. Sample questions: {5) 1. Describe the two main branches of Statistics 5673? 33W" 2?: if 1g” g TWT'EST'IC S _‘ Tiffa“ oiiunaulfg in? 7;va

this, he asks the thirty students in his music theory ciass to teil him if they feit tuition rates at the
university were too high or ifthey were reasonable. After tailying his results, George estimates that 73%
of students in the university consider tuition to be too high while 27% think tuition is reasonabie. 3. identify the population under study.
