MATH 325 LAB 5 Using Minitab to conduct ANOVA procedures The steps required for completing the deliverables for this assignment (screen shots that correspond to these instructions can be found immediately following them). Complete the questions below and paste the answers from Minitab below each question (type your answers to the questions where noted). Therefore, your response to the lab will be this ONE document submitted to the Dropbox. Context (remember that statistics are far more than numbers or values – you need to know the context to perform a good analysis!). Study: A nurse practitioner is studying the effect of blood sugar (glucose) control, which involves collecting the average daily AC and QHS (fasting) blood sugar levels of the patients to determine if there is relationship between these and the patients’ Hemoglobin A1C level. She hypothesizes that good blood sugar control will result in ideal Hemoglobin A1C levels and inadequate control of the patients’ blood sugar will result in high Hemoglobin A1C levels. She also tracks other factors that may contribute to the patients’ control of their blood sugar such as carbohydrate intake, age, frequency of glucose checks, and insurance coverage of diabetic supplies. Hemoglobin: Ideal Hemoglobin A1C levels for patients are 6 or 7, a value of 8 or 9 merits concern, values 10 and up are considered severely uncontrolled, while values less than 6 are rare in diabetic patients. 4 and 5 can be found normally in patients that are not diabetic. Blood Sugar: Glucose levels under 70 are considered low, between 70 and 110 is considered normal, 111 to 170 is considered moderately high, and values above 170 are considered high. There is some debate on the cut points, however, these are the values used to categorize glucose levels in this study. Glucose _Range: This is a categorical variable describing the group into which the patient’s glucose level places them: low, normal, moderately high, and high.

    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.
