AP Statistics  Practice Test Sampling Distributions Confidence Intervals

___ 1 ) According to the central limit theorem, the sampling distribution __________________.
___ 2 ) The average height all monkeys is 48 with a standard deviation of 2 inches. What is the standard deviation of monkey heights for the sampling distribution of size ten?
___ 3 ) What effect does population size have on the mean and standard deviation of a sampling distribution?
___ 4 ) Generally a statistic is used for
  5 ) Construct 95% confidence for the following:
a) A survey of 1000 voters indicates that 60% will vote for the purple party.
b) The community garden has an average of 40 worms/square ft. with s= 4, based on a sample of 9 test squares.
c) Bob's turnips have a standard deviation of 4. Martha takes a sample 0f 16 out of the latest shipment and gets a mean of 26.

d) Bart takes measures an average height of elves = 42 and an s = 4 for a sample 0f 16 elves.

___ 6 ) If the width of a confidence interval triples, what also had to happen to the margin of error?
___ 7 ) If the sample size is increased by a factor of 2, what is the effect on the margin of error?
___ 8 ) If the confidence level is changed from 80% to 95% what is the effect on the margin of error?
___ 9 ) Which type(s) of error(s) will the margin of error account for?
___ 10 ) What is the z* for a confidence level of 85%?
___ 11 ) Which types of studies can make use of confidence intervals?
___ 12 ) What is the minimum sample size for determining the mean length of widgets in a manufacturing industry to a margin of error = plus or minus .2 given a 90% confidence interval and a standard deviation = 3.
___ 13 ) Which is more accurate, a margin of error with a confidence level of  65% or a margin of error with a confidence interval  of 90%?
___ 14 ) For an 80 % confidence interval, we are confident that _______________ .

Check out Articles by Mr. Rogers:

Insultingly Stupid Movie Physics is one of the most humorous, entertaining, and readable physics books available, yet is filled with all kinds of useful content and clear explanations for high school, 1st semester college physics students, and film buffs.

It explains all 3 of Newton's laws, the 1st and 2nd laws of thermodynamics, momentum, energy, gravity, circular motion and a host of other topics all through the lens of Hollywood movies using Star Trek and numerous other films.

If you want to learn how to think physics and have a lot of fun in the process, this is the book for you!
