Carbondale Space Shuttle Challenger Accident Discussion
Chapter 11 begins with a paragraph about the space shuttle Challenger accident in January 1986 and the topic continues on page 307 with a statistical test indicating data would have shown this as a very likely failure.
The final chapter sentence states “This is one of the more dramatic instances that points out why engineers and scientists need a strong background in basic statistical techniques.”
Find an article, or state an example, where data was important in making the right decision. Why was data needed to make the right decision when we have all these smart people around?
Overview: There is a connection between chapter three and chapter one. Therefore, as an extension of our week in the mock chapter three from last week, we will write a mock chapter one. For the sake of preparation, we will be using the required headings from the University of the Cumberlands Dissertation Handbook. Like we discuss in class, each university has unique parameters for what they expect in chapter one, so you may see papers from other universities that look slightly different. The importance here is to focus on the content, not necessarily the organization. This assignment will help determine your readiness to write a full-length chapter one.
