Gen 101 – Statistics Assignment
Statisticians work with data from all sources and one of their challenges is working out what data
is important. In this assignment you will complete calculations based on two sets of data to
understand the data better and make predictions. Be sure to include all your calculations in your
submission and to round everything to 4 decimal places unless you are reporting money.
Using the two datasets provided you need to complete the tasks below.
Section 1.0 – Using Dataset Number 1 complete the following:
1.1 Identify the Sampling method used to collecting the data. Identify if

Standard Deviation and variance for the Chemistry Grades
1.5 Use two different methods calculate the Correlation Co-Efficient for
the Height and Weight of the students, Interpret your answer in
both cases and discuss the difference between the two methods
used (Max 150 words)
1.6 Determine the Least-Squares regression line for the Height and
Weight of the students. Determine the Goodness of fit for the data
