Math 10 Spring 2000

NOTE:  The JMP files are now in the Math 10 course folder on Public, not compressed, as well as here on the web site in compressed format.

Here is a JMP file with the data from the class survey.

Here is a JMP file with the old book measurements that we made in class on Friday, March 31.

Here is a JMP file with the new book measurements that we made in small groups on Monday and Tuesday, April 3 and 4.  The final three columns have the measurements, in thirty-seconds of an inch, made by each small group separately, in case you want to compare the distributions.

Here is a copy of the syllabus and assignments through this week.

Here are the JMP files for the measurements we took in small groups on  Monday PM, Tuesday AM, and Tuesday PM.

Here are the files for the April 17/18 small groups.  The file contains the actual weights of all the puzzle pieces.  The file lab.3.results contains the data you collected.  On Monday afternoon the random number generator was not working correctly, so Rebecca and I produced random samples in place of the ones from that group.  We have separated them out in the file.

Here is a JMP file for use with problem 4.8.  And here is a file, z-computer, that you can use to compute z-scores and such.  Put your data in Column 1.  The next two columns give the z-scores (relative to the standard deviation and mean for that data), and the proportion of individuals who will have a lower z-score (the same proportion you would look up in the table of standard normal probabilities.)  If you want the z-score and probability computed relative to a larger population for which you know the mean and standard deviation, enter that mean and standard deviation in the first entries of Columns 4 and 5; the final two columns give the z-scores and standard normal probabilities for your data.  The file currently has the heights of women on the class survey in Column 1; the mean and standard deviattion for the heights of all young American women have been entered in Columns 4 and 5.

Here are the results of the Coca-Cola tasting.

Here are some comments and the data from our pea-weighing exercise:

Here are JMP files for use with problems 9.9 and 9.12.  To produce a two-way table, use "Analyze: Fit Y by X", with both X and Y being categorical variables.  The chi-squared test described in the textbook is the one called "Pearson" by JMP.

Here is the peanut data from the last small group meeting.
