- 1. Statistics 3 Confidence Intervals and the t - Distribution - Lesson 1 - <ul><li>Key Learning Points/Vocabulary: </li></ul><ul><li>The concept of a confidence intervals (notes). </li></ul><ul><li>Calculating a 95% confidence interval for a sample drawn from a normal population of known variance. </li></ul><ul><li>Calculating any confidence interval. </li></ul>
- 2. Lesson 1 - Example Question I The heights of the 1320 lower school students at Poole High School are normally distributed with mean μ and with a standard deviation of 10cm. A sample of size 25 is taken and the mean height of the sample is found to be 161cm. a.) Find the 95% confidence interval for the height of the students. b.) If 200 samples of size 25 are taken with a 95% confidence interval being calculated for each sample, find the expected number of intervals that do not contain μ , the population mean.
- 3. Lesson 1 - Example Question II The masses of sweets produced by a machine are normally distributed with a standard deviation of 0.5 grams. A sample of 50 sweets has a mean mass of 15.21 grams. a.) Find a 99% confidence interval for μ , the mean mass of all sweets produced by the machine correct to 2dp. b.) The manufacturer of the machine claims that is produces sweets with a mean mass of 15 grams, state whether the confidence interval supports this claim. Source: Page 48 of Statistics 3 by Jane Miller

- 5. Generalisation: Sample from a Normal Population A 100(1 – α )% confidence interval of the population mean for a sample of size n taken from a normal population with variance σ 2 is given by where x is the sample mean and the value of z is such that Ф (z) = 1 – ½ α .

Statistics 3 Confidence Intervals and the t - Distribution - Lesson 2 - <ul><li>Key Learning Points/Vocabulary: </li></ul><ul><li>The central limit theorem (S2) </li></ul><ul><li>Unbiased estimate of the population variance (S2). </li></ul><ul><li>Calculating the confidence interval for a large sample. </li></ul>
- 8. Unbiased Estimate of the Population Variance Given a sample of size n (n large) from a population of which the variance is unknown, we estimate the population variance s 2 as detailed below:
- 9. Generalisation: Large Sample for any Population Given a large sample (n>30) from any population, a 100(1 – α )% confidence interval of the population mean is given by where x is the sample mean and the value of z is such that Ф (z) = 1 – ½ α .
- 10. Lesson 2 - Example Question On 1 st September, 100 new light bulbs were installed in a building, together with a device that detailed for how long each light bulb was used. By 1 st March, all 100 light bulbs had failed. The data for the recorded lifetimes, t (in hours of use), are summarised by Σ t = 10500 and Σ t 2 = 1712500. Assuming that the bulbs constituted a random sample, obtain a symmetric 99% confidence interval for the mean lifetime of the light bulbs, giving your answer correct to the nearest hour.

- 13. Lesson 3 - Example Question You are the manufacturer of tin openers to be used specifically by left handed people. A random sample of 500 people finds that 60 of them are left handed. What is the 95% confidence interval for this estimate of the proportion of people who are left handed? Source: Page 55 of Statistics 3 by Jane Miller

- 20. Theory For a random sample from a normal population with mean μ , the variable has a t distribution with ν degrees of freedom, where ν = n – 1. That is,
- 21. Generalisation: t-distribution Given a sample from a normal population of unknown variance, a 100(1 – α )% confidence interval for the population mean is given by where x is the sample mean and the value of t is such that P(T ≤ t) = 1 – ½ α for ν = n – 1 degrees of freedom.

- 24. Lesson 5 - Example Question The weights of eggs laid by a hen when fed on ordinary corn are known to be normally distributed with a mean of 32kg. When a hen was fed on a diet of vitamin enriched corn a random sample of 10 eggs was weighed and the following results (in grams) were recorded: 31, 33, 34, 35, 35, 36, 32, 31, 36, 37 Test, using a 5% significance level, the claim that the new diet has increased the mean weight of eggs laid by the hen by more than 1g.
