Description of this paper

MAT SLP Modules 1-5




Question;Module -1;The assignment this week is to collect quantitative data for a minimum;of 10 days from ONE of your daily activities. Some examples of data collection;include;? The number of minutes you spend studying every day.;? The time it takes to cook meals each day.;? The amount of daily time spent talking on the phone.;? The amount of time you drive each day.;In a paper (1?3 pages), describe the data you are going to collect and;how you are going to keep track of the time. Within the paper, incorporate the;concepts we are learning in the module including (but not limited to);probability theory, independent and dependent variables, and theoretical and;experimental probability. Discuss your predictions of what you anticipate the;data to look like and events that can skew the data. Collect data for at least;10 days. Do you think the data will provide a valid representation of these;activities? Explain why or why not.;Module-2;Using the data you collected in the Module 1 SLP, write a paper (1?3;pages) including all of the following content;? Calculate the mean, median, and mode of your collected data. Show and;explain your calculations.;? Are these numbers higher or lower than you expected? Explain.;? Which of these measures of central tendency do you think most;accurately describes the variable you are looking at? Provide your;justification.;? Create a box plot to represent the data, labeling and numerating all;5 points on the box plot. For the plot, you may draw and insert it in your;paper as a picture. Make sure it is legible.;Module-3;Continuing with the data you collected in the Module 1 SLP, write a;paper (1?3 pages) including all of the following content;? Include your data from Module 1.;? Create a frequency distribution table for your data. You can use;Excel or Word.;? Calculate the standard deviation.;? Calculate the variance.;? Is this a normal distribution? How do you know?;? What are the implications?;Module-4;In this assignment, you will continue to collect data for another 5?10 days.;Write a paper (1?3 pages) including all of the following content;? Recalculate the mean, standard deviation, and variance.;? Is your mean increasing or decreasing?;? Explain the effects of the larger sample size in relation to your;data.;? Do you think the current sample you have is enough to draw an;accurate conclusion, or do you need a larger sample?;? What conclusions can you draw from comparing both sets of data?;Module-5;Welcome to the final SLP. In this assignment, you will use regression and;ANOVA to analyze your data. Write a 2- to 4-page paper summarizing the;following points.;1. Take your data and arrange it in the order you collected it. Count;the total number of observations you have, and label this number N. Then create;another set of data starting from one and increasing by one until you reach N.;For example, if you have 10 observations, then your new set of data would be;(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10). This set of data is called a time series. Run;a regression using your original set of data as your dependent variable, and;your time series as an independent variable. Go to the following site (using;Google or Firefox) to calculate your regression; What is the;regression equation? Interpret and explain your results.;2. Divide your data in half (or into two groups of 8 or less). Then use;ANOVA to test if there is a significant difference between the two halves of;your data. Use this site to input your data (;Interpret and explain your results.;Summarize your conclusions at the end of the paper.
