Unformatted text preview: BIOL2300-001 Name: am Ea?” Homework #7 Due: Friday, November 13, 2009 D: On Monday, November 9, 2009 there will be no formal class. Instead, use this time to find ten (10) acorns on the UTA campus (or anywhere else where they are abundant). i prefer that the acorns come from a Live Oak tree (very common), but if you are unsure, don‘t worry about it. Just make sure that all of your acorns are all the same kind. Measure your ten acorns to the nearest 0.1 cm using a simple ruler and record your data. Please only use acorns that do not have a cap (those are the ones you’ll find on the ground). Be mindful of angry squirrels and take precautions if necessary. Calculate the mean size and standard deviation for your sample. Then calculate the standard error. 22m: I did this already for my own sample and found a mean of 2.2 cm with a standard deviation of 0.079 cm and a standard error of 0.025 cm. Use the confidence interval approach to test the null hypothesis that your sample of acorns is no different in size than my sample of acorns. Remember, this approach requires you to use the formula: 95% CI = (y, — Y2) i‘oms‘ cSE — — [vi-y]; [f zero is included in your calculated interval, then you must accept the null hypothesis (Ho). If zero is not included in your calculated interval, then you can reject the null hypothesis with only a 5% probability of doing so in error. Please state whether you accept or reject the null hypothesis and Show why. Show all work on this sheet (using the trout and back). _2. s 0.0% Mzdul-o.

    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.
