Applied Statistics: PROJECT I

This past couple of weeks you have just studied the topics of mean, median, mode, quartiles and standard deviation. Now, we are going

to use these mathematical concepts to analyze the weights of the TU football team. Attached is a roster of the players with their

weights, and an electronic form of this data is available on the course webpage.

Data Analysis:
1. Find your own personal sample of 30 players by starting at the player named in the email that accompanied this assignment.

Start counting with the next person on the list, and take every third person on the list until you get 30 people. (Jump to the top of

the table if you run out.)
2. Compute the five-number summary using the sample data above and then construct a box-and-whisker plot for the data. If you

wish, you can use the graph template document and stretch the elements to fit your data, or draw the graph neatly and accurately by

hand.
3. Calculate the mean and standard deviation for the sample data.
4. Use the mean and standard deviation from Part 3 to create an Empirical Rule graph (normal curve). Compare the curve to the box

and whisker plot to determine if the data “roughly” follows the Empirical Rule. If you wish, you can use the graph template document

and stretch the elements to fit your data.
5. The population mean for the entire team is 214.6 pounds and population standard deviation for the entire team is 42.2 pounds.

Compare these to the results for step 3. Do your sample statistics fairly represent the population parameters?
6.
For Project 1 You will get your sample of thirty players starting with player Melvin King, found in line 69 of the Excel data file

“Project 1 Data Fall 2015.xls”. Please follow all the instructions found in the description file “Project 1 Fall 2015.doc”
7.
In addition to submitting all work and calculations (whether done by hand or on Excel), you are to submit a word-processed 6-paragraph

summary of the assignment and your findings. The summary should be formatted with one paragraph for the introduction , one paragraph of

analysis/interpretation for each of steps two through five listed above, and a one-paragraph conclusion. The summary should not detail

your method of calculations, rather it should report and interpret the results of your calculations and what they mean. Submit the

data, the calculations, the graphs, and the analysis paper to Moodle or to the instructor on or before the due date.
