Section 2 - Describing Distributions with Numbers
Creating films that are "age appropriate" is less of a science and more of an art form. Whereas we might believe a particular film is created to engage a specific audience, raw data of such a showing might prove other wise. Below you will find links to trailers of three different films released in the fall of 2010. Additionally, you will find an excel sheet with some data that I collected outside of the theater.
Recently, on Capitol Hill, Senator Diane Feinstein introduced new legislation designed to address "Common Sense Gun Regulations". Pictured above is a Customized Velocity Arms Vmac Automatic Pistol that is listed as a proposed "banned firearm". In truth, at the heart of all gun regulation is the hope that we can reduce the overall violent crime rate... So if we are going to speak intelligently about the crime rate, we should at least know what it is and how it works.

CHAPTER 2 - LOOKING AT DATA RELATIONSHIPS
Sections 1 and 2 - Scatterplots and Correlation
Leonardo DaVinci was a prolific artist and scientist. In fact, he was one of the first individuals to hypothesize that there was a relationship between certain aspects and measurements of the human body. His Vitruvian Man is shown above and is a representation of his hypothesis.
Below you will find several data sets that also indicate relationships and associations between various data sets.

Section 5 - Data Analysis for two way tables
Where you get your news used to be a simple question and a simple answer. The local news paper, perhaps the network news that came on shortly after dark. Today, that question is less simple and even more polarizing. Below is a link to the full results of a Public Policy Polling study released on February 6, 2013 dealing with this very issue.

Shown above is one of the most well known moments in US Presidential history. The image depicts President Franklin D. Roosevelt delivering his 1932 inauguration speech titled "The Only Thing We Have to Fear is Fear Itself". As important as this moment was to American history, the days leading up to his inauguration were just as tense and meaningful.

We will begin our discussion on hypothesis testing with a brief exploration of a motivating problem. See the links below.
*5 steps for hypothesis testing*
1. Given a claim determine the null and alternative hypotheses.
2. Given a claim and sampled data determine a test statistic.
3. Given a claim and sampled data find a critical value.
4. Given a claim and sampled data find a p-value.
5. State your conclusions in plain understandable English.
