STAT 3743 Daily Outline
Up there should be four (4) files:

STAT3743_xxxxxx.3gp
(video for mobile phones) 
STAT3743_xxxxxx.ogv
(video in Ogg format) 
STAT3743_xxxxxx.pdf
(scanned lecture transcript) 
STAT3743_xxxxxx.webm
(video in WebM format)
The WebM
video is definitely the highest quality, but
you need a compatible browser/player to watch it.
See How to watch the video for instructions to get one.
WelchAspin interval explained
How to do it with R
Confidence intervals for proportions
Examples of proportions
The asymptotic zinterval for proportions
Example: SRS(4791) from binom
, find 95% CI for p
Score interval: see book
Confidence intervals (asymptotic) for two proportions
Onesided CIs for p
How to do it with R
Sample size
margin of error, E
sample sizes for means, easy
Example: find n such that xbar plus/minus E is 95% CI
Remarks
 always round up
For proportions, little bit harder
 replace p with prior guess
 replace p(1  p) with 1/4, can't do worse
Example: monkeys who don't like bananas, find sample size for proportion, both methods
Sample size for small pop'ns, use hypergeometric distribution
Hypothesis Testing
For proportions
Example: shotgun machine, want to improve performance, install thingamajig
Terminology
 null hypothesis
 alternative hypothesis
