BUS 308 Week 1 DQ 1 Performance Report (Ash Course)

BUS 308 Week 1 DQ 2 Probability

- You are the manager at a company and are asked to present a report on the year-to-date performance of your division. What type of statistical information would you include in your report? In particular, which descriptive statistics (mean, median, standard deviation, etc.) do you think would best represent the main aspects of the performance of your division? What types of graphical presentation (histogram, dot plot, stem-and-leaf, bar chart, etc.) would you include? Explain your reasoning

- Things vary in life – virtually nothing (except physical standards such as the speed of light) we interact with is constant over time.
- Much of this variation follows somewhat predictable patterns that can be examined using probability.
- An example of a subjective probability is: “Cops usually do not patrol this road, so I can get away with speeding.”
- An empirical probability example is: “Each production run has a 5% reject rate.”

BUS 308 Week 1 DQ 2 The Empirical Rule vs. Chebyshev Theorem (Ash Course)

BUS 308 Week 1 Problem Set

- The Empirical Rule vs. Chebyshev’s TheoremDiscuss how the Empirical Rule works and how it relates to the bell curve as illustrated in Figure 3.14 (a). Then, explain Chebyshev’s Theorem and how it is different from the Empirical Rule. Give a specific example of a population with which the Empirical Rule might be most effective and one with which Chebyshev’s Theorem might be most effective. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings.

- 1. For assistance with these calculations, see the Recommended Resources for Week One. Measurement issues.
- Data, even numerically code variables, can be one of 4 levels – nominal, ordinal, interval, or ratio.
- It is important to identify which level a variable is, as this impacts the kind of analysis we can do with the data.

BUS 308 Week 2 DQ 1 Hypotheses

BUS 308 Week 2 DQ 1 Relative Frequency (Ash Course)

- Discussion 2-1/Hypotheses
- What is a hypothesis test? Why do we need to use them to make decisions about relating sample results to the population;
- why can’t we just make our decisions by the sample value?

- Relative Frequency. Conceptually we would expect the probability of newborn males and females to be the same. However, census reports indicate that the ratios of males and females in various countries do not conform to the theoretical prediction. What do you think accounts for this variation? Can you think of other cases where the expected probabilities do not quite agree with the empirical values?

- Variation exists in virtually all parts of our lives.
- We often see variation in results in what we spend (utility costs each month, food costs, business supplies, etc.).
- Consider the measures and data you use (in either your personal or job activities).
- When are differences (between one time period and another, between different production lines, etc.) between average or actual results important?
