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.

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

Does weight classification effect the average heart rate of a runner when running 1 mile at a pace of 10 minutes per mile?
