Topics from Chapters 7, 8, 10, 13.1 – 3, 15.2: 1) Find the probability for a range of values for the sample mean. 2) Find the methods of moments estimator for a parameter. 3) Find the maximum likelihood estimator for a parameter. 4) Construct confidence intervals for the mean of a normal distribution, using either the normal distribution or the t distribution 5) Explain the role of sample size and confidence level on interval width 6) Explain the role of confidence level on the sample size required to obtain a specified margin of error 7) Explain and use the concept of p-values and rejection regions as criteria for making decisions when testing hypotheses 8) Test hypotheses on the mean of a normal distribution, using either the normal distribution or the t distribution 9) Test hypotheses for the means of two normal distributions, distinguishing between dependent and independent samples (know how to do all 4 tests from this section) 10) Explain and use the relationship between confidence intervals and hypothesis tests

Unformatted text preview: 11) Construct confidence intervals on the variance or standard deviation of a normal distribution 12) Test hypotheses on the variance or standard deviation of the normal distribution 13) Test hypotheses regarding two population variances 14) Test hypotheses regarding more than two population variances (Barlett’s test using JMP output) 15) Understand and use the analysis of variance to test the equivalence of means for more than two populations 16) Use multiple comparison procedures (Tukey test) to identify significant differences between means (as follow-up to ANOVA procedure) 17) Use the Chi-square Goodness of Fit test Preparation Tips: 1) Make sure you have a note or formula on your formula sheets for each of the items above. (ONE 8.5x11 sheet of paper with both front and back used) 2) Review all homework solutions. HWS: 9, 10, 11 (problems 1-2) 3) Review the examples in your class notes. 4) Look over the review material....
