Star Library:  An Unusual Episode

Star Library: An Unusual Episode

Created by Mary Richardson of Grand Valley State University, this article describes an activity that illustrates contingency table (two-way table) analysis. Students use contingency tables to analyze the "€œunusual episode" (the sinking of the ocean liner Titanic) data (from Dawson, 1995) and attempt to use their analysis to deduce the origin of the data. The activity is appropriate for use in an introductory college statistics course or in a high school AP statistics course.
