Term 5 Unit 8 Discussions
Unit 8 DB: How to Respond to Requests to Act Unethically (LAW204 Business Law)
Imagine that you work for a mortgage broker. You are considering the application for a mortgage for someone who falls below the income threshold. When you bring the application to your supervisor, she tells you “Just approve it. We need to make our quota this month. Who cares if they go into foreclosure!” Referring to the suggestions in your text about how to resist requests to act unethically, what would you do?
Regardless of whether you are an attorney arguing in court or a business stakeholder pitching to shareholders or a potential client, adding support for your argument from appropriate resources strengthens your content. For this discussion board, be sure to include a citation to an appropriate source that supports the point you are making. (HINT: Your textbook is a great source!)
Unit 8 Discussion: Correlation (MAT220 Statistics 1)
Question 8 A
Pick any two variables that you feel may be related and estimate what you think the strength of the correlation coefficient would be for those two variables. In your response, estimate the value of r. For example, specify a strong (.7 to .9), medium (.4 to .6), or low (0 to .3) value for r. The value of the coefficient can be positive or negative. For example, consider an increase in police patrols in a neighborhood and the number of burglaries that occur in that neighborhood. I would say that would be a strong inverse relationship with an r-value of -0.8; as one (patrols) increases, the other (burglary rate) goes down. Describe the factors that you think would contribute to why the variables would have the relationship that you estimate it to be.
Question 8 B
Now that you have completed this course in Statistics, please describe a concept covered in the course that you feel might be of assistance to you now or in the future. For example, using charts and graphs to graphically describe data at your job, or using one of the sampling methods discussed at the beginning of the course to generate sample data. Please be specific in explaining how you would use what you have learned in class to your benefit.
