For anyone who has ever taught Statistics, getting your students to remember all of the steps involved in confidence intervals and hypothesis testing is IMPOSSIBLE! When I was doing my AP Calculus teacher institute at Davidson College, I met this awesome statistics teacher who shared these with me. For Confidence Intervals, always make your students PANIC: P - state your parameter(s)A - state and justify your assumptionsN - name your intervalI - find your intervalC - write a conclusion in context of the problemFor Hypothesis Testing, get your kids to follow PHANTOMS: P - parametersH - hypothesesA - assumptionsN - name your testT - find your test statisticO - obtain your p-valueM - make a decision (reject or fail to reject)S - state a conclusion in the context of the problemI hope this helps you! It certainly changed my 2's and 3's into 4's and 5's!! |
