Students apply categorical data analysis techniques to analyze the sinking of the RMS Titanic, and whether class and/or gender played a role in a passenger's chance of survival. I recommend showing a few pictures and/or video clips about the Titanic to engage students before beginning this activity.

Construct and interpret two-way frequency tables of data when two categories are associated with each object being classified. Use the two-way table as a sample space to decide if events are independent and to approximate conditional probabilities. For example, collect data from a random sample of students in your school on their favorite subject among math, science, and English. Estimate the probability that a randomly selected student from your school will favor science given that the student is in tenth grade. Do the same for other subjects and compare the results.
Understand that two events π and π are independent if the probability of π and π occurring together is the product of their probabilities, and use this characterization to determine if they are independent.
Summarize categorical data for two categories in two-way frequency tables. Interpret relative frequencies in the context of the data (including joint, marginal, and conditional relative frequencies). Recognize possible associations and trends in the data.
