My Statistics students always had trouble setting up the Null Hypothesis and the Alternative Hypothesis and without that, the tests and interpretations cannot be determined properly. Now I explain the unit and what Hypothesis Testing is all about first, and start them off with this set of notes and problems. At first they are excited not to do any math or calculations, but then the challenge begins.
There are two sets of the problems, one multiple choice and the other mostly free response. There are 17 questions for which students determine the Null and Alternative Hypothesis in symbolic form and also determine which is the claim. Students can work alone or in pairs. Also included in this resource are notes with three examples and a student response sheet.
Note: Students are not testing the hypotheses, just setting up. You can, of course, go back to these examples at a later date to complete the tests.
Please note there are Two versions
of the resource, one with H1 notation and the other using the HA notation. The preview only shows H1.
