									Significance Test &
Confidence Interval
      Activity
On paper, each student
must turn in his or her
 individual answers to
Questions 5 through 9.
On one collective sheet
 of paper, each group
will be discussing with
me their answers to 10
      through 13.
1. Get in groups of 3 to 6.
2. Create 2 questions you want to
   know about your classmates:
   one with categorical answers
   and one with quantitative.
3. Create null and alternative
   hypotheses for proportions and
   for means with your questions.
 4. Collect data for
each question from
 all of the 20 to 25
 classmates not in
     your group.
   5. Come back into
groups and every single
person record data and
  put the quantitative
       data in L1.
    6. Individually,
     compute the
confidence interval for
proportions using your
   categorical data.
    7. Individually,
     compute the
confidence interval for
  means using your
quantitative (L1) data.
 8. Individually, do all
   five steps for the
significance test about
    hypotheses for
proportions using your
   categorical data.
 9. Individually, do all
   five steps for the
significance test about
hypotheses for means
using your quantitative
        (L1) data.
   10. Within groups,
discuss, debate, explain
    and record the
confidence interval for
      proportions.
   11. Within groups,
discuss, debate, explain
and record confidence
   interval for means.
   12. Within groups,
discuss, debate, explain
and record all five steps
for the significance test
    for proportions.
   13. Within groups,
discuss, debate, explain
and record all five steps
for the significance test
       for means.
   Turn in individual
papers and as a group,
  come to discuss 10
 through 13 with me.
