Activity 9
Part I: (Adapted from Exercise 4.11)
In a study done in England, Voss and Mulligan (2000) collected data on
height (short or not) and whether or not the student had ever been bullied in
school for 209 secondary school students. The following is
Activity 1: Descriptive statistics for categorical variables
Log into ANGEL and go to the Lab Activities folder for today. Then, open the dataset Spring
Survey Results in Minitab. This data was collected during four previous sections of Stat 200.

Relationships between Two Quantitative Variables
Part I: Whenever we have two quantitative measurements on the same individual, it may be
interesting to know if there is a relationship between the two variables. A simple scatterplot of
one var

For this activity, open the dataset UCDavis2 in the folder for today. It
contains data on several variables for students at the University of
California, Davis.

Part I: Making an assumption about the physical world (the dice).
Many games involve rolling two 6-sided dice (eg: Monopoly and casino
craps). In this activity, we will find the probabilities for these outcomes,
specifically the sum of the dice
Activity 10
Part I: (adapted from Exercise 7.80 in the text) A rare disease occurs in
about 1 out of 1000 people who are similar to you. A test for the disease has
sensitivity (positive test result for someone who has the disease) of 95% and
specificity (

Part I: Normal Probabilities
Suppose that X = amount that a randomly selected student at PSU spent on textbooks this
semester is a normal random variable with mean = $400 and standard deviation = $85.
It follows that Z = (X 400) / 85 is a stan
Activity 14:
Confidence Intervals for One Proportion
Part I: The data for this part are in the Spring 2006 Survey Results data set found on ANGEL.
This represents a sample from the population of all Penn State students. We plan to use this sample
data to

Confidence Intervals for Two Proportions
Part I: Open the worksheet Spring 2006 Survey Results data. Recall from Activity 14 our
comparison between PSU students from big cities and PSU students from small towns. We defined

Activity 16
Part I: (adapted from exercise 11.88) For this exercise, use the dataset UCDavis2 (in today's folder).
In the survey, students reported ideal height (idealHt) and actual height (height).
We are specifically interested in the difference between
