RE: hw, miniproject 1
Hello everyone,
This is just a reminder that hw 3 will have a due date
later this week. We need to finish introducing correlation and linear
regression.
hw 3 is due Friday April 29
I have received a number of emails asking me what question
or questions is being asked about in the Miniproject 1. The main question that
we discussed in class was
"What is the difference in your pulse rate under different
activity levels."
Some other questions about the data might be, how can we
calculate the average of the data from each level to see how your pulse rate
differs? Another question might be, is there a difference in the pulse or
variation in the data at each level of activity.
Another question about graphically representing the data,
how can one graphically compare the different groups of data on one graph? Ans:
By making a sidebyside boxplot.
You should think of a few other questions and answer them
also.
As for Writing up the paper, the paper should look like a
paper not a hw assignment. It must be typed and have the following
1. Title
2. Your name and the name of the class.
3. Introduction: Describe what you did and why you were
asked to do it.
4. Body of analysis: Discuss at least 3 main issues. The
comparison between the 3 groups. What the means are and how they differ. The
comparison of the spread in each group and how they differ. You should prepare
a sidebyside boxplot and discuss this for sure, it might be for the first
issue.
5. Conclusions: You might search google for what the
average pulse rate is for Americans at you age group. State anything else you
might have learned.
Hopefully this gives a little better idea of what to work
on when writing up your report on your pulse rate.
