Discuss Poster Project Analyzing Categorical Data Constructing and using Two-Way tables

We will be able to do the following after completing this investigation: Organize data collected into a two-way table Analyze data in a two-way table Construct and analyze a segmented bar graph

8.SP.4 Understand that patterns of association also can be seen in bivariate categorical data by displaying frequencies and relative frequencies in a two-way table. Construct and interpret a two-way table summarizing data on two categorical variables collected from the same subjects. Use relative frequencies calculated for rows or columns to describe possible association between the two variables.

Categorical variables take a value that is one of several possible categories. As naturally measured, categorical variables have no numerical meaning. Examples: Hair color, gender, field of study, college attended, political affiliation, status of disease infection.

Statistical Question: How do those sitting in the front and back of the room compare in their ability to roll their tongue? Collect Data On post-it note indicate front or back of room and whether or not can roll your tongue.

Possibilities Frequency Front – Yes Front – No Back – Yes Back – No Total

FrontBackTotal Roll Yesab Roll Nocd Total

How many teachers in this study? How many teachers could roll their tongue How many teachers sat in the back? How many teachers sat in the front?

How many teachers who sat in the back could roll their tongue? How many teachers who sat in the front could roll their tongue? How many teachers who could roll their tongue sat in the front?

What percent of the teachers who sat in the front could roll their tongue? What percent of teachers who sat in the back could roll their tongue? What percent of teachers who could roll their tongue sat in the front?

Decide what variable will be represented on the horizontal axis. Ex: Where a person sat Calculate percents using the variable on the x axis as the denominator of the fraction. What percent of those sitting in the front could roll their tongue? What percent of those sitting in the back could roll their tongue?

How different are the percents? Do the two stacked bars look very different? If there is a distinct difference then we say there is an association between the two variables. That is; if I know one variable does it help me predict the other variable – if yes then there is an association.

Recently my dog Fudge attended an obedience class. There were 50 dogs in the class. 30 of the dogs were classified as large and 20 were classified as small. At the end of the class the owners of 15 dogs received certificates indicating that their dogs had passed the class. Questions: 1. How many large dogs passed? 2. How many small dogs passed?

If you knew the size of the dog would that help in deciding whether or not the Dog passed the class in this scenario? Is there an association between size of the dog and whether or not passed the class?

Construct a stacked bar graph with size of dog on the x axis. All the small dogs failed

Students at a high school conducted a research study to investigate questions about asthma. One question was do students who suffer from asthma come from a home with a smoker? The students received responses from 937 high school students. Of these students 182 suffered with asthma and 395 lived in a home with one or more smokers. Complete a two-way table
