Problems

To Calculate

1. In slide 4, we used "posterior predictive p-value" to get the respective p-values 1.0e-13, .01, .12, and .0013. What if we had mistakenly just used the maximum likelihood estimate r=0.003, instead of integrating over r? What p-values would we have obtained?

To Think About

1. Can you think of a unified way to handle the Towne family problem (estimating r and deciding which family members are likely "non-paternal") without trimming the data? We'll show one such method in a later segment, but there is likely more than one possible good answer.

Class Activity

We divided into three teams. Each team prepared a single solution set for last year's surprise quiz of around this date.

Here are the three solutions:

Team 1

Group Two: The Towne Family - Again, Class Activity

Team 3 scanned PDF

Voting Comments

Vsub: Team-1: 8/9 (lacking in explanations). Team-2: 6.5/9 (lacks explanation, nice plots, too concise on 6,7) Team-3: 7/9 (incomplete ans3; incorrect answers 6,7; good detailed derivations). Vote preferenceorder: Team1 > Team3 > Team2
