Description

At the end of this lab (designed for one 3-hour lab period), students should be able to:

  • Explain what a correlation analysis is and when it should be applied
  • Explain what a t-test is and when it should be applied
  • Decide which graph is appropriate based appropriate graphs given different datasets and hypotheses
  • Understand that correlation does not imply causation
