Problem 5: Physical Fitness versus Weight. You may have noticed from your analysis in Problem 4 that height does not explain 100% of the variation that we have observed in students’ heights. Is it possible that the amount of time students devote to physical fitness each week may help us to better understand their weights? a. Question 12 of the survey asked students, “About how much time per week (on average) do you devote to physical fitness?” We have named this variable FITNESS. Create a suitable graph to display the distribution of FITNESS and insert it here. b. What is the mode of this distribution? (Please underline one option.) Between 0 & 2 hours Between 2 & 5 hours Between 5 & 9 hours Between 9 & 15 hours Over 15 hours c. Create side-by-side boxplots to display students’ weights for the different levels of FITNESS. (Go to Graph > Boxplot > One Y with Groups > OK. Select WEIGHT for the “Graph variables” slot and FITNESS for the “Categorical variables for grouping” slot.) Insert your graph here. d. Use Minitab to calculate the basic statistics of WEIGHT for each level of FITNESS. Copy and paste the output here. e. With regard to FITNESS levels, which group of students has the lowest mean weight? (Please underline one option.) Between 0 & 2 hours Between 2 & 5 hours Between 5 & 9 hours Between 9 & 15 hours Over 15 hours f. Discuss the results: Describe the distributions of WEIGHT for the different levels of FITNESS as well as draw comparisons (i.e., What do they have in common?) and contrasts (i.e., How are they different?) between these distributions. Are there any surprises in the results? Explain why you think so, or why not. Problem 6 (Even): If your E number ends in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, or 8) then do this question. (Omit this page/problem if your E# ends with an odd number.) Gender and Nuclear Safety. Question 5 in the survey asked students “How safe would you feel if a nuclear energy plant were built near where you live?” (Students could choose one of these options: Extremely safe, Very Safe, Moderately safe, Slightly safe, or Not at all safe.) Is there a relationship between gender and students’ opinions about nuclear safety? a. Create an appropriate graph to display the relationship between GENDER and NUCLEAR SAFETY. You don’t want to display information for students that didn’t answer both of these questions on the survey, so click on Data Options > Group Options and remove the checks in the boxes beside “Include missing as a group” and “Include empty cells.” Insert your graph here. b. Create an appropriate two-way table to summarize the data. Click on Options > Display missing values for… and put a dot in the circle beside “No variables.” Insert your table here. c. SUPPOSE WE SELECT ONE STUDENT AT RANDOM: (Calculate the following probabilities and show your work.) i. What is the probability that this student is a female and feels “very safe”? P = ii. What is the probability that this student is either a male or that he/she feels “very safe”? P = iii. What is the probability that this student feels “not at all safe” given that the student selected is a female? P = iv. What is the probability that this student is a male given that the student selected feels “not at all safe”? P = d. Do you think there may be an association between GENDER and NUCLEAR SAFETY? Why or why not? Explain your reasoning based on what you see in your graph.

Posted By: User_sq9nw6 (PrestoExperts) instructions: This assignment focuses on gender roles characterized in “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”. Discuss the role gender has played in each of these movies/stories considering 1 male character and 1 female character to support your conclusions. First ask yourself how males and females are “typically” portrayed in folklore-begin your comparison there. I am looking for a comparison between the “Gutenburg/Original” version (found on Libguides) and the “new (Johnny Depp-Sleepy Hollow” version. How is the *new* version modified to express contemporary social mores/ideas. REMEMBER-You MUST cite your sources with in-text cites and a works cited at the end of your paper. Use the Purdue OWL link on Libguides if you need guidance. search criteria: internet, Turnitin student paper database, periodicals, journals, & publications rubric set: none

As a student of ECON1005, suppose you were asked to assist a co-worker in investigating whether there is an association between gender and annual salary of researchers in your country. Data was gathered from researchers in your country in your country. MINITAB was used to generate stem-and-leaf diagrams for the salaries of both the female and male researchers. See Exhibit 1 below. Exhibit 1 Stem-and-Leaf Display: Salary Female, Salary Male Stem-and-leaf of Salary Female N = 15 Leaf Unit = 1000.0 1 5 8 5 6 1345 (3) 7 148 7 8 389 4 9 2245 (a) Calculate the mean salary for both the female and the male researchers. All relevant working must be clearly shown. (b) Calculate the standard deviation of the salaries for both the female and the male researchers. All relevant working must be clearly shown. (c) Comment on your answers for parts (c) and (d), in relation to the purpose of your study, that is, the association between gender and annual salary of researchers in your country. MINITAB was used to generate box-and-whisker diagrams for the salaries of both the female and male researchers. See Exhibit 2 below. Exhibit 2 (d) With reference to the box-and-whisker diagrams, compare the salaries of the researchers selected in your sample, by gender. Ensure that you comment on the skewness, the median, the interquartile range, the minimum and the maximum values of both diagrams. MINITAB was used to generate the descriptive statistics for all the 35 researchers selected in the sample. See Exhibit 3 below. Exhibit 3 Descriptive Statistics: ResearcherSalary Variable N N* Mean SE Mean TrMean StDev Minimum Q1 Median Q3 Salary 35 0 82951 2266 83200 13404 58100 74800 83800 94300 Variable Maximum Salary 104500 (e) What does TrMean represent? Comment on the value of the TrMean and show how this value was calculated. (f) For further analysis, a table is drawn showing the number of females and the number of males whose salaries were below the median salary and equal to or above the median salary. Complete the table below: Salary < $83800 Salary ? $83800 Total Female Male Total 35 (g) Using your table in part (h), determine the probability that a randomly selected researcher from your sample, is a female OR has a salary < $83800. (h) Using your table in part (h), determine the probability that a randomly selected researcher from your sample, is a female AND has a salary < $83800. (i) Given that a randomly selected researcher from your sample is a female, what is the probability that her annual salary is < $83800? (j) Are the events “female researcher” and “salary < $83800” mutually independent events? Support your answer with relevant calculations or explanations.

Sex, Gender, and Popular Culture Spring 2015 Look through popular magazines, and see if you can find advertisements that objectify women in order to sell a product. Alternately, you may use an advertisement on television (but make sure to provide a link to the ad so I can see it!). Study these images then write a paper about objectification that deals with all or some of the following: • What effect(s), if any, do you think the objectification of women’s bodies has on our culture? • Jean Kilbourne states “turning a human being into a thing is almost always the first step toward justifying violence against that person.” What do you think she means by this? Do you agree with her reasoning? Why or why not? • Some people would argue that depicting a woman’s body as an object is a form of art. What is your opinion of this point of view? Explain your reasoning. • Why do you think that women are objectified more often than men are? • How does sexualization and objectification play out differently across racial lines? • Kilbourne explains that the consequences of being objectified are different – and more serious – for women than for men. Do you agree? How is the world different for women than it is for men? How do objectified images of women interact with those in our culture differently from the way images of men do? Why is it important to look at images in the context of the culture? • What is the difference between sexual objectification and sexual subjectification? (Ros Gill ) • How do ads construct violent white masculinity and how does that vision of masculinity hurt both men and women? Throughout your written analysis, be sure to make clear and specific reference to the images you selected, and please submit these images with your paper. Make sure you engage with and reference to at least 4 of the following authors: Kilbourne, Bordo, Hunter & Soto, Rose, Durham, Gill, Katz, Schuchardt, Ono and Buescher. Guidelines:  Keep your content focused on structural, systemic, institutional factors rather than the individual: BE ANALYTICAL NOT ANECDOTAL.  Avoid using the first person or including personal stories/reactions. You must make sure to actively engage with your readings: these essays need to be informed and framed by the theoretical material you have been reading this semester.  Keep within the 4-6 page limit; use 12-point font, double spacing and 1-inch margins.  Use formal writing conventions (introduction/thesis statement, body, conclusion) and correct grammar. Resources may be cited within the text of your paper, i.e. (Walters, 2013).
