1 Biju Padmanabhan Ryan Curtice Introduction To do a statistical investigation the first step is a problem that triggers the investigation. In our table groups we came up with possible problems to investigate. After possible problems were posted and voted on as a class the problem was decided on to be Parking on campus. After the problem was set we had a discussion on a question to be researched. This question would need to be broad enough to be able to come up with more questions in order to collect data and answer our problem. We then discussed about what kind of population would be researched. The target population is the total group of possible people researched for the investigation. We defined our target population as all students with a w parking permit who park on main campus between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm. After rewording and deciding the target population we came up with the question; What parking problems are students who have W parking permits, who have to park between 8am and 6pm on main campus, experiencing most often? From there we needed to create survey questions for our survey. These questions are intended to help collect data and help answer our question but it is important that they are not biased. Everyone in the class then submitted either a categorical or numerical question. We then voted on 5 numerical and 5 categorical questions to be on our survey. The top 10 questions were put together for a pilot survey. As a class we looked over the questions and deleted ones that were repeated or very similar and then added to a few of the questions to make them more understandable. Next each student took the rough draft of the survey and went out and had one person take it.

    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.
