Does it appear that there is a relationship between the budget and the number of nominations? Below is a list of ten 2005 movies with the budget cost (in millions of dollars), the box office receipts (in millions of dollars) and the number of Oscar nominations it received. Does it appear that there is a relationship between the budget and the number of nominations? {image} • Yes • No AMATYC 2007**Which is not true about the correlation coefficient?**• An r = 0 indicates no linear relationship between the two variables • An r =1 indicates a perfect positive relationship between the two variables. • The correlation coefficient must be between -1 and 1. • The correlation coefficient measures the strength of the linear relationship between two qualitative variables. AMATYC 2007**In a random sample of eight college women, each was asked**her height (to the nearest inch) and her weight (to the nearest five pounds). The scatter diagram is shown below. What is the best estimate for r? In a random sample of eight college women, each was asked her height (to the nearest inch) and her weight (to the nearest five pounds). The scatter diagram is shown below. What is the best estimate for r? {image} • r = -0.875 • r =0.567 • r = 0.865 • r = 0.508 AMATYC 2007**In a random sample of eight college women, each was asked**her height (to the nearest inch) and her weight (to the nearest five pounds). A scatter diagram was constructed. From this scatter diagram, one can conclude all except for which? In a random sample of eight college women, each was asked her height (to the nearest inch) and her weight (to the nearest five pounds). A scatter diagram was constructed. From this scatter diagram, one can conclude all except for which? {image} • There is a positive linear relationship between the height and weight of the women. • In general, the taller the woman the more she will weigh. • Taller women must also be heavier. • In general, the shorter the woman the less she will weigh. AMATYC 2007**The correlation between the height and weight of 8**college-age women is obtained. The Minitab output is shown below. Correlations: Height, Weight Pearson correlation of Height and Weight = 0.865 P-Value = 0.006 • There is a strong positive linear relationship between height and weight. • There is a weak positive linear relationship between height and weight. • There is a strong negative relationship between height and weight. • There is a strong positive nonlinear relationship between height and weight. What does the correlation coefficient indicate about the relationship? AMATYC 2007**The regression equation relating x, the number of hours one**studied, to y, the exam grade is determined to be ŷ = 4.1x + 68.7. From this equation, one can conclude that The regression equation relating x, the number of hours one studied, to y, the exam grade is determined to be {image} = 4.1x + 68.7. From this equation, one can conclude that • On average, each additional hour of studying will increase the exam grade by approximately four points. • On average, each additional hour of studying will increase the exam grade approximately 69 points. • If one studies four hours, the exam grade will be approximately a 69%. • The effect of one additional hour of studying can not be determined unless it is known how long one studied. AMATYC 2007**The regression equation relating x, the number of hours one**studied, to y, the exam grade is determined to be ŷ = 4.1x + 68.7. Predict the exam grade of someone who studied one and a half hours. The regression equation relating x, the number of hours one studied, to y, the exam grade is determined to be {image} = 4.1x + 68.7.

AMATYC 2007**If the parent population is normally distributed, {image}**will If the parent population is normally distributed, will • be normally distributed for n = 2 • be normally distributed for n = 9 • be normally distributed for n = 30 • All of the above are true. AMATYC 2007**As the sample size increases the ________.**• Standard error increases and the sampling distribution of sample means becomes shorter and wider. • Standard error increases and the sampling distribution of sample means becomes taller and thinner. • Standard error decreases and the sampling distribution of sample means becomes shorter and wider. • Standard error decreases and the sampling distribution of sample means becomes taller and thinner. AMATYC 2007**Ball-bearings are manufactured such that their mean diameter**is 2 inches and their standard deviation is 0.5 inches. Many samples of size 25 are randomly selected and their means are calculated. The distribution of these sample means should: • be exactly the same as the parent population. • have a similar measure for central tendency but much more dispersed. • have a similar measure for central tendency but much less dispersed. • randomness makes it too difficult to predict. AMATYC 2007**Student Feedback**• 96% felt more engaged and participative using clickers in the course • 100% recommended that the instructor continue to use clickers in the class • It helped me “to see if I was understanding the material”; “to pay attention and participate in class”; “ to learn in a different way”; “stay involved”; “to review for tests”. • #1 answer – “the anonymity, so I could see if I understood the material – could see the results of your answer and everyone else in class; there was adequate feedback with all of these” AMATYC 2007**Results between pre and post applet/clicker classes**• Applets alone – avg corr/regr test = 90% • Applets & clickers Final exam scores are 9.5% pts higher Comprehensive section scores are 8.7% pts higher Final averages are 5-6% pts higher AMATYC 2007**Logistics**• Questions • Comments AMATYC 2007
