I’m studying and need help with a Mathematics question to help me learn.
This week’s discussion section will be used to help you apply statistical terms to an area that is of interest to you.
Initial posting: This must be submitted by Wednesday at 11:59 PM to receive credit. Your initial discussion posting should be a question that you are interested in learning more about. For example, I would like to improve my golf game. My question would be “What are effective techniques that can be used to improve a golf game?”
Posting from Thursday to Sunday by 11:59 PM: The subsequent discussion postings would be ideas to help set up a study that would answer your question and help your colleagues set up their study as well. Be sure to post how you would set up your study as well as you must respond to at least one of your colleagues to help them with their study. Any of the following could be possible discussion postings:
How would you do it?
- What sampling technique would you use to select the sample for the study?
- Will the technique you chose in part 1 give you a sample that is representative of the population?
- Describe the method for collecting data.
- Identify possible flaws or biases in your study.
- What type of data do you expect to collect: qualitative or quantitative or both? Why?
- At what level of measurement do you think the data in the study will be? Why?
- Will the data collected for the study represent a population or a sample?
- Will the numerical descriptions of the data be parameters or statistics?
