We will begin today's activities by having you take a little quiz!  Good Luck!! 

   Climate Science Quiz 

When you complete the quiz, please complete the following survey.

One of the emerging applications we see for statistics is an interdisciplinary journey with the visual arts.  The process for creating informative, descriptive, representative can be daunting and needs proper instruction.

Data Visualization Activity

Based on our virtual discussions, you have an assignment!  Below are two separate data sets (one for the AM group and one for the PM group).  Your charge is to use the data set and your partner to create a data visualization, using Google Data Studio, to represent that data.  Once you finish building the visualization, please post a published link to your visualization on the google doc provided below.  We will review some of these when we meet again next Saturday.  HAVE FUN, BE CREATIVE, AND LET THE DATA SPEAK!!!

An Exercise in Simulation
Simulation is a very powerful tool used in data analysis.  Researchers use simulations in many forms, particularly when re-sampling from the population multiple times is not an option.  The exercise below is one of those cases.

In the Spring of 2015 I gave my Introduction to Statistics course their fourth examination of the semester.  Prior to this date I had noticed several of my students not being honest when representing their own work.  As a result, I decided to create two versions of my test.  We shall call these two versions "green" and "yellow".  I randomly selected who got what version, administered the test, and scored them.  The results are below.

Version Yellow = 71.4

Version Green =   76.9

Difference (Yellow - Green)  = -5.5
