Assignment 2 Due on October 3, 2008 1) Adult males are taller, on average, than adult females. Visiting two recent American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) under 12 year old (U12) soccer matches on a Saturday, you do not observe an obvious difference in the height of boys and girls of that age. You suggest to your little sister that she collect data on height and gender of children in 4 th to 6 th grade as part of her science project. The accompanying table shows her findings. Height of Young Boys and Girls, Grades 4 - 6, in inches Boys Girls Y Boys S Boys n Boys Y Girls S Girls n Girls 57.8 3.9 55 58.4 4.2 57 (a) Let your null hypothesis be that there is no difference in the height of females and males at this age level. Specify the alternative hypothesis. (b) Find the difference in height and the standard error of the difference. (c) Generate a 95% confidence interval for the difference in height. (d) Calculate the t - statistic for comparing the two means. Is the difference statistically significant at the 1% level? Which critical value did you use? Why would this number be smaller if you had assumed a one - sided alternative hypothesis? What is the intuition behind this?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
