An Exercise to Introduce Power
Seier, Edith; Liu, Yali
Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, v35 n1 p53-56 Spr 2013
In introductory statistics courses, the concept of power is usually presented in the context of testing hypotheses about the population mean. We instead propose an exercise that uses a binomial probability table to introduce the idea of power in the context of testing a population proportion. (Contains 2 tables, and 2 figures.)
