Stat 511 Homework 8 Spring 2011 Due: 11am, Monday Mar 21 1. The data in range.txt come from a field study of plant response to fertilization. There are five treatments (a control and four different fertilization regimes) randomly assigned to plots arranged into blocks. The response is the average PO4 concentration in plant leaves. (a) Assume blocks are a fixed effect and analyze the data. Report: The F statistic and p-value for the test of no differences among fertilizer treatments The estimated diffence between between the 100lb.N treatment and the 100lbNP treat- ments and its se. The mean for the No fertilizer (No.fert) treatment (averaged over blocks) and its se. (b) Assume blocks are a random effect and analyze the data. Report: The F statistic and p-value for the test of no differences among fertilizer treatments The estimated diffence between between the 100lb.N treatment and the 100lbNP treat- ments and its se. The mean for the No fertilizer (No.fert) treatment (averaged over blocks) and its se. (c) Using the default parameterization, R reports an estimated intercept of 4.2520 when using a fixed block analysis and 6.5800 when using a random block analysis. Explain why these numbers are different and how you can extract 6.5800 from the estimates provided by the fixed block analysis.

    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.
