Homework Assignments

The homework assignments will be posted on this web page every week.

Homework assignments are to be turned in at studio at the beginning of class on the due date. Any computer work should be turned in as a hard copy and submitted via the web. Go to https://secure.engr.oregonstate.edu:8000 chose 'login to ENGR', and then follow instructions to submit. Files should be named HW#_YourLastName.


The required format is posted here. Your homework will not be graded if it does not adhere to this format (although we may be lenient for HW1)

Solutions (PDF) will be provided in this page after the date each homework assignment is due.

Course Learning Objectives

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  1. By hand and using software, perform the following: (1) statistically summarize data including measures of central tendency and dispersion, and (2) use the appropriate graphical form to summarize data for analysis including box plots, scatter plots and histograms. Match given graphical output to the corresponding summary statistics. Explain trends in data based on these methods.
  2. List the key characteristics of probability distributions, in particular the normal distribution. Given a histogram, explain how it relates to the normal distribution. Given a mean, standard deviation and observed value, calculate the z-score and find the corresponding percentile. Identify populations that follow a binominal distribution and a Poisson distribution
  3. Describe the sampling distribution of a statistic, in particular the t distribution and the chi-squared distribution. Given a study, describe what role statistical inference plays in terms of the population and sample. Calculate confidence intervals. Statistically analyze data for significance and compare sets of data. Define the standard error of a statistic.
  4. Fit experimental data to an empirical model equation using least squares analysis. For linear regression, both by hand and using software, calculate the slope intercept and correlation coefficient. Explain the relation between the slope of the regression line and the correlation coefficient.
  5. Given data from a process, calculate control limits and capability (Cp and Cpk). Distinguish between specification limits and control limits. Make SPC control charts, including x, x-bar R, and x-bar S charts.
  6. Quantify the effect of (i) a single factor and (ii) two factors on a process by applying Analysis of Variance (ANOVA).
  7. In the context of Design of Experiments (DOE), (i) set up a balanced design array, (ii) create a marginal means plots and/or an interaction plot from the experimental response, and (iii) develop an empirical model equation.
  8. Define the important elements of a measurement system. Calculate the repeatability and reproducibility of a gauge based on measured data.
