Throughout the first chapter we covered in AP Statistics, I felt generally comfortable with the material. In my opinion, the balance between instructional videos and straight learning allowed for a better understanding of the topic. Although the videos were solely for instructional purposes, they were still relatively entertaining and made the classroom experience more enjoyable. I liked how the curriculum began with the introduction to experiments; the basis of all statistics and all mathematics branched off that. In other words, I liked how each topic within the unit was an extension of the previous. For example, after learning the many types of sampling such as cluster sampling, multistage sampling, stratified sampling, systematic sampling, and simple random sampling, we learned how to employ these types of sampling in the construction of various experiments. All problems that I have encountered in statistics so far have had nothing to do with solving for variables or linear graphs; rather they are complex word problems about populations and samples. Statistics has turned out to be the complete opposite of what I thought it was going to be. Overall, I think the topics in this unit were not difficult to learn and conceptualize, yet, I sometimes found them tricky to apply to certain situations. For example, there are many ways to pick a sample size, but which way is the best? Many biases may be present but which one is the best example? I believe that the best…

– Between (2 between subjects factors)
Mixed Design (1 between, 1 within subjects factor)
Within – Within (2 within subjects factors)
The purpose of this experiment was to determine
the effects of testing mode (treadmill, bike) and
gender (male, female) on maximum VO2.
mode is a within subjects factor with 2 levels
Gender is a between subjects factor with 2 levels
Maximum VO2 is the dependent variable.

Chapter 12: Services
1) A few service jobs I'm interested in would be an anesthesiologist this type of service job is consumer service under health services. These doctors play an essential role in keeping patients alive, and asleep during surgery no matter how long it may take. Their handsome paychecks reflect the responsibility and risk involved in their jobs. Another service job I'm interested in is an Aerospace Engineer; they conduct engineering duties in designing…
