Finite Math Project 2012 Guidelines The purpose of the project is to use your probability and statistics skills to investigate hypotheses about the students of CCHS. The requirements below are the minimum requirements; an “A” report will do all necessary to establish any claim it attempts to make. Requirements: Example Data gathering Survey questions: One Primary Data Question: “How often are you late to 1st period?” Three Secondary Questions “Are you a “morning” or “night” person?” At least one quantitative question “What is your GPA?” Number Surveyed: Group of 1/2 surveys: 100 Group of 3 surveys: 150 Data Analysis At least two Comparisons Of Condition probability to General Probability to. prove a claim l At least two analyses of the a quantitative question giving mean, mode, median and standard deviation And the Histogram “L= Late 10+ times, F = Live 4+ miles away P(L│F) = .80 while P(L) = .20 thus you can See that those who live farther away are far more likely to be late more often confirming my hypothesis.” “The mean GPA of out sample is...” (histogram not shown) Display of Data At least one histogram (see above) At least one other graph as appropriate to the data displayed Concluding Comments 3-5 Paragraphs 1 Introduction 1-3 Analysis (as needed) 1 Conclusion At least two claims should be made. Appendixes All calculations and tally sheets should be attached at the end.
