Unformatted text preview: ENGRD2700 Basic Engineering Probability and Statistics Spring 2009 Homework 1: Descriptive Statistics, a Rousing Introduction to MINITAB, and your Graphical Critique Hand in by 1:30 pm on Friday, January 30 in the ENGRD2700 dropbox (2nd floor Rhodes near Upson). Be sure to write your name and section number (1–6) or day & time on your homework. (5 points awarded!) Make sure that your homework pages are stapled together. This homework has 12 parts — not all require a written response. NOTE: It is highly recommended that you use MINITAB to complete this assignment, but you may use other software packages if you prefer. Create a MS Word Document (or similar) and then paste all graphical or numerical results into this document. In particular you can right click on any graph in MINITAB and copy it to the clipboard. Then use Paste Special in the document. Annotate the document so that each piece of output is clearly explained. Do NOT hand in raw MINITAB output. Instead your answer should be self contained in the form of a “report”. Write clearly and concisely. Statistics is partly about communication. Your answers will be graded on the clarity of your writing as well as the correctness of the answer. In fact, — this is the policy for all homework and exams in this course. A geyser is a hot spring that occasionally becomes unstable and erupts hot water and steam into the air at irregular and unpredictable intervals. The “Old Faithful” geyser at Yellowstone National Park is one of the most famous. Visitors to the park arrive at the geyser site to see it erupt without having to wait too long; the name of this geyser comes from the fact that eruptions follow a relatively stable pattern. The National Park Service erects a sign at the geyser site predicting when the next eruption will occur.
