The goal of this project is to collect, explore, and describe your own data using the knowledge you gained through the course. In doing so, you will have an opportunity to calibrate and apply what you’ve learned in class to the real data of your interest.
You are tasked with the following activities, most likely in sequence. What you will include in the final report is indicated with the description of each task.
There are two discussion boards dedicated to this project.
Discussion board #1: For all communications regarding this project
Discussion board #2: “Data Collection Ideas” for sharing ideas
TASK #1: Data Collection (15 points)
You will collect a set of samples from the population of your interest. However, we will limit our interest to quantitative data, either discrete or continuous. (Definition 2.1) The number of samples you will collect is at least 30. There is a reason for this lower bound, which you will find later in the course. Although it’s difficult to have a perfect random sample of the population, you try to have a simple random sample. (Definition 1.4) You are encouraged to read Section 1.2 and 1.3 in your e-Text. Sampling will be done without replacement.
There is a discussion board set up for ideas of population that might interest you. Anyone with extra ideas on what kind of data might be collected without extra burden is encouraged to post those ideas in the dedicated discussion board, titled “Data Collection Ideas.”
Items to report in this task:
1. What is the population?
2. What is your interest or characteristic in this population? This will be the variable. Is the variable discrete or continuous?
3. How did you collect the samples?
Tips: Data is everywhere. Try a simple population for which you can collect samples easily around you, your house, or your work place.
