• A number of years ago, there was a popular television game show called Let's Make a Deal. The host, Monty Hall, would randomly select contestants from the audience and, as the title suggests, he would make deals for prizes. Contestants would be given relatively modest prizes and then would be offered the opportunity to risk that prize to win better ones.

• Suppose you are a contestant on this show. Monty has just given you a free trip worth \$500 to a locale that is of little interest to you. He now offers you a trade: Give up the trip in exchange for a gamble. On the stage are three curtains, A, B, and C. Behind one of them is a brand-new car worth \$45,000. Behind the other two curtains, the stage is empty.

• 1. The table to the right gives a breakdown of 2,149 civil cases that were appealed. The outcome of the appeal, as well as the type of trial (judge or jury), was determined for each case. Suppose one of the cases is selected at random and the outcome of the appeal and type of trial are observed.

• 2. Zoologists investigated the likelihood of fallow deer bucks during the mating season. Researchers recorded 163 encounters between two bucks, one of which clearly initiated the encounter with the other. In these 163 initiated encounters, the zoologists kept track or not a physical contact fight occurred and whether the initiator ultimately won or lost the encounter. Suppose we select one of these 163 encounters and note the outcome (fight status and winner). Complete parts a through c.

• 1. A country’s government has devoted considerable funding to missile defense research over the past 20 years. The latest development is the Space-Based Infrared System (SBIRS), which uses satellite imagery to detect and track missiles. The probability that an intruding object (e.g., a missile) will be detected on a flight track by SBIRS is 0.6. Consider a sample of 10 simulated tracks, each with an intruding object. Let x equal the number of these tracks where SBIRS detects the object. Complete parts a through d.

• Why is it important to study ethics in statistics? Have you seen statistics misused? Without naming specific companies or people, can you provide examples?

• Please find (on the Internet or from the Keller library) and post an article regarding ethics and statistics. Please attach the article, or provide its link in your post, together with a brief summary of the article in your own words. Be sure to use quotation marks around any words taken directly from the article (not to do so constitutes “plagiarism”). Then, in a separate post, review one or more articles posted by other students and provide the other student or students with your reflections (don’t just agree or disagree).

Human Resources (HR) at a university’s Health Science Center provides guidelines for supervisors rating their subordinates. For example, raters are advised to examine their ratings for a tendency to be either too lenient or too harsh. According to HR, “if you have this tendency, consider using a normal distribution-----10% of employees (rated) exemplary, 20% distinguished, 40% competent, 20% marginal, and 10% unacceptable “Suppose you are rating an employee’s performance on a scale of 1 (lowest) to 100 (highest). Also, assume the ratings follow a normal distribution with a mean of 50 and a standard deviation of 16. Complete parts a and b.
