Chapters 7 - 8: Study Guide

  1. Determine the probabilities associated with the standard normal distribution. Shade the proper region under the curve. Six parts. Look at problems 7.6 - 7.39*.
  2. Find a z-value when the area under the curve is known. Look at problems 7.46 - 7.48*.
  3. Multiple Choice. Know the properties of the Standard Normal distribution.
  4. Multiple Choice. Know the properties of the Student's t distribution.
  5. Multiple Choice. Know the properties of the sampling distribution of the sample mean (Central Limit Theorem).
  6. Multiple Choice. Know the properties of a good estimator.
  7. Definitions. Supply the term being defined. Four parts. Know the definitions of: (7) Sampling error, Standard error of the mean, z value; (8) Confidence interval, Degrees of Freedom, Estimator, Interval estimate, Maximum error of the estimate, Point estimate.

This is a group exam. The first page (problems 1 - 7) must be worked individually and turned in. The remainder of the test may then be worked in groups of up to size three. There is no requirement that you work in groups.
