1st Semester Final Exam Review
You should be able to….
 Look at a graph of a histogram, stemplot, or boxplot and determine if it is skewed to the right or left, has any
clusters or gaps, has any outliers, etc.
 Make a stemplot of a data set (with and without split stems).
 Determine the relative positions of the mean and median based on the shape of the graph.
 Estimate IQR given the cumulative proportions for values in a data set.
 Estimate the standard deviation of a mound-shaped graph.
 Know when it is appropriate to use the mean or the median as the best measure of center.
 Know which summary statistics are strongly affected by outliers.
 Conduct the outlier test from the 5-number summary.
 Identify the five-number summary and range of a boxplot.
 Draw & interpret segmented bar graphs.
 Know the properties of the normal distribution.
 Find “standardized scores.”
 Find normal probabilities using z-scores and the standard normal table.
 Find the regression line of a data set using both STAT-CALC-8 and the formulas for slope and y-intercept.
 Interpret the slope, y-intercept and coefficient of determination of a regression line in context.
 Describe and analyze points on a scatterplot.
 Estimate the correlation coefficient given a scatterplot.
 Know the properties of correlation coefficient.
 Identify what the residual plot looks like given a scatterplot.
 Identify outliers and influential points on a scatterplot & discuss their properties.
 Linearize data using (x, logy) and (logx, logy). Then find the line of best fit for the transformed data set.
 Know which transformation works best for an exponential model / power model.
 Know when causation can be determined and when it cannot.
 Describe the difference between an experiment and an observational study.
 Discuss the four main ways to collect data: census, sampling, experiment, simulation.
 Describe the six sampling methods (names, characteristics, examples, which are random, which are biased).
 Identify the three types of bias: undercoverage, nonresponse, response.
 Identify the three experimental designs and the three principles of experimentation.
 Identify explanatory & response variables in an experiment, plus the experimental groups and the control group.
 Find a conditional probability from a table.
 Interpret the Law of Large Numbers.
 Interpret the probability distribution of a discrete random variable & find a missing probability in it.
 Know that the joint probability of two independent events , P(A and B) = P(A)P(B).
 Find expected value given a game scenario.
 Determine what happens to the mean and standard deviation of a random variable as a result of a linear
 Combine means and standard deviations for two independent variables.
 Solve a golf problem like we just did in class!
