  1. Identify a question you would like to answer using statistics which may be answered using a confidence interval in plain English.


Example:  What is the average GPA of an incoming student at MC


  1. Identify the parameter related to your question and its symbol and its name.


Example:  m, mean


  1. identify the statistic related to your question and its symbol


Example: x(bar), sample mean


III. List  your data(try to get at least 10 in your sample).


Example:  3.28, 2.41, 3.64, 1.28,3.56, 2.57, 3.10,2.94, 2.45, 3.16, 2.45


  1. Describe your population of inteeest.


Example: All students at MC


  1. Describe your sample.


Example:  11 Studens in my statistics class


  1. Comment on how you obtained your sample


Example: Conducted an email survey of the students in my statistics class


  • Comment on the bias in your sample


Example;  This sample is biased since it is only people in math 117, who need certain perquisites to take the course, this underrepresents students without the prerequisites.


  • If there is bias in your sample comment on how you could have obtained an unbiased sample.


Example;  We could have gotten a numbered list of students at MC and chsen every 10th name on the list.





IX..   Find several confidence intervals using bootstrapping, what assumptions did you make?



95% (2.421,3.146)

99%: (2.315,3.231)


The assumption was made that the underlying distribution was approximately normal.


  1. Create a question related to I, which may be answer with a hypothesis test

Example:  The average GPA for a student at MC is about 2.0


XII. Set up the hypothesis related to you question using the appropriate notation.




H0: m = 2.0  (the mean GPA is about 2.0)

Ha m ≠2.0  ( the mean GPS is different than 2.0)


XIII. Compute the value of the standardized test statistic to the nearest .01


Test statistic = =3.648


XIV. State the distribution and degrees of freedom if necessary.


T-distribution with 10 degrees of freedom, .00383


  1. Find the p-value using a non-bootstrapping approach.




XVI. Find the p-value using bootstrapping to the nearest .01




XVII.  Make a conclusion about the question you identified at the .05 level of significance.


Reject the claim that the mean GPA is 2.0 since the pvalue = .008<.05 = significance level.


XVIII  Identify the cases and variables.
