After studying the capture-mark-release-recapture methods complete the following problem. For this problem, assume that we have collected the entire population. Use the handout provided in the Week 2 Study Notes.  You may also want to visit this website to review how to calculate a standard deviation.  http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/standard-deviation-formulas.html 

  • Sample 1 = 85
  • Sample 2 = 65
  • Recaptured = 45

1.  Calculate the Population size2.  Calculate the mean3.  Calculate the standard deviation4.  Create a histogram reflecting the standard deviation of your results.5.  What could you deduct about this population based on the results of your standard deviation?6.  If this sample only reflected an estimate of the whole population, what correction to the standard deviation calculation would you need to make?  Refer to the mathisfun website to help you with this part.   http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/standard-deviation-formulas.html

After studying the capture-mark-release-recapture methods complete the following problem. For this problem, assume that we have collected the entire population. Use the handout provided in the Week 2 Study Notes.  You may also want to visit this website to review how to calculate a standard deviation.  http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/standard-deviation-formulas.html 

· Sample 1 = 85

· Sample 2 = 65

· Recaptured = 45

1.  Calculate the Population size

2.  Calculate the mean

3.  Calculate the standard deviation

4.  Create a histogram reflecting the standard deviation of your results.

5.  What could you deduct about this population based on the results of your standard deviation?

6.  If this sample only reflected an estimate of the whole population, what correction to the standard deviation calculation would you need to make?  Refer to the mathisfun website to help you with this part.
