In this unit, you will investigate the normal probability curve (the bell curve). Many variables,
such as height and weight are normally distributed. This means, for example, that if you were
to collect 10,000 female adult human heights, the histogram of
In Unit 5, there are three main topics (problem types): describing correlations, measuring
correlations, and evaluating here scatterplots. You will be exposed to all three topics by either
formulating a response (main post) or commenting on a classmates r
During Unit 8, you will learn about how to use a sample statistic (such as a sample mean) to
estimate the value of a population parameter (such as the true population mean). For example,
you can estimate the true mean weight of all newborn babies in the e
During this unit, you will learn about many different types of graphs, which graphs are
most appropriate for specific data, and when graphs are misleading. For instance, a
graph can misrepresent the data if it does not provide a proper representation of t
Bennett, Briggs, Triola (12/2012) accentuates that a normal distribution can have any value for the mean and any
positive value for the standard deviation. Therefore, this explains why results for GMAT, the LSAT, and the GRE
test are normally distributed
According to Bennett, Briggs, and Triola (2012), theoretical probability is primarily based on the
assumption that the likeliness of an event occurring is based on all the possible outcomes. In my
personal life, I like officiating friendly football matche

2. What does each observation (row) in the dataset represent?
Each observation or row represents both quantitative and qualitative characteristics (data) about
each male participant.

The Harvard Nurses' Health Study presents researchers with an excellent opportunity to access information thats
not currently available. The prolonged existence of the research is an outstanding feature of the Harvard Nurses'

I managed to download and save the Final Project from Doc Sharing during the third week of the class
because I was more interested with the kind of questions that were being asked. Actually, I have been
working on the questions throughout the class. I suc
A population parameter is a characteristic that describes a population (Bennett, Briggs, Triola, 2012), but
its often impossible or difficult to know its actual value mainly due to sampling errors, especially when
dealing with a large population. Its also
For this discussion, I chose the exercise #26 on page 248, titled Calories and Infant Mortality.
Calories and Infant Mortality
Consider the following table showing mean daily caloric intake (all residents) and infant mortality rate
(per 1,000 births) for
In statistics, graphs are used to describe as well as summarize data in a manner thats easily understandable,
especially when it comes to reproducing and discussing the presented information in words. However, graphs should
be labeled appositely to make t
The name of the data set that I choose is Tobacco in Movies. Each row in the dataset
represents an observation that makes up this specific study. In each row there is first a specific
movie, the production company who made the movie, the amount of minutes
For my final discussion I chose to discuss legalized euthanasia. I am in favor of legalizing
euthanasia, probably because I work in the medical field and see people suffering all the time.
Even after analyzing the main arguments, such as it being murder,
To better understand this unit, I began with the word theory. According to
Blais & Hayes (2011) a theory is a supposition or system of ideas that is proposed
to explain a given phenomenon (p.99). Honestly, I must admit that I found this
