BUSINESS STATISTICS

Week #3 (3/30-4/3, 2020) - Remote Learning Assignments


Greetings Business Statistics Periods 2-4:

I hope you and your families are all safe and sound.  We enter the third week of remote instruction with some clearer direction and the knowledge that we will not return to the classroom in April.  Here’s the assignments for the coming week and a couple general announcements.


COMING ATTRACTION - LIVE INSTRUCTION!!  The school is establishing a more structured calendar for after Spring Break that will include a live (“synchronous”) instruction component  (likely two twenty-minute live class sessions per week per class).  To prepare us for the live (synchronous) instruction component, I will likely schedule a class session on Google Hangout or Zoom later this week.  This first session will focus on the digital logistics but it will also provide an opportunity to ask questions and get additional support.  If you have suggestions on how we might best use this time together, I’m all ears.  There is no precedence for what we’re doing here so all ideas are worth throwing out there.

AVAILABLE BY EMAIL EVERYDAY:  Email remains the quickest and most efficient means for us to communicate.  I am available most of the regular school day.  If you need me to be available in real time for more interactive communication, I’ve established "office hours”.   This week, you can reach to me Monday and Wednesday between 8:30-11:00pm.  I’m happy to schedule appointments in other windows of time as well.

GOOGLE CLASSROOM: With us not touching base everyday, I’ve decided to post assignments on Google classroom.  These instructions will be identical to those posted on the website and in the emails I send you. Refer to my email today (Monday March 30) for the Google class code.

ASSIGNMENT GRADES ARE POSTED: Grades are posted for the first two weeks of remote instruction. If you see anything that’s not right, drop me an email and it’s easily corrected.  If you need an extension, just reach out and we’ll work around any limits you are encountering.  If you see NTI (“not turned in”), that indicates you didn’t complete the assignment and it counts the same as a “0”.  When people contact me and need additional time, I record EXT (“extended time”) until they are able to make up the work and this score designation does not impact the overall grade percentage.


WEEK #3 ASSIGNMENTS:

“Customer Service: Front Desk” & “Customer Service: Social Media Feedback"

**************************************************************************************************************************


Week #2 (3/23-27/2020) - Remote Learning Assignments

This week, you’ll complete another KM Hotel lesson (“Marketing & Public Relations”), but for variety I have integrated a unit on LinkedIn profiles.  This unit will expose you to this important communication tool and will advance your college and career preparedness.

REMOTE INSTRUCTION ASSIGMENT HISTORY 


Week #1 (3/16-20/2020) - Remote Learning Assignments


This week, we will complete the first two lessons in the Knowledge Matters (KM) Hotel simulation.  For those absent on Friday (March 13), please add the following course code to your Knowledge Matters accounts.

Period Two - JE6CS7

Period Three - NE7TE8

Period Four - GL7NZ3


Each lesson will require you to complete a reading quiz, math quiz and simulation training (same as past KM simulation units) .  Minimum scores for the reading quiz have been set to 70% for the reading quiz and 60% for the simulation training (automatic retake if you get less).  You will take the math quiz but this score will not influence your weekly grade.  We will revisit some of these math topics in future week(s) of remote instruction. 


Here’s the first two lessons to complete this week.  These assignments will be due at midnight on Friday March 20, 2020.  

Lesson #1 - Pricing & Revenue Management

Lesson #2 - Group Sales


ASSESSMENT NOTES: For continuity, the GHC administration has asked teachers to post one and only one grade for each week of remote instruction.  The weekly grade will be posted a couple days after the due date.  My plan is to segregate the weekly grades for remote learning weeks and weighting them proportionately with the number of weeks that school is shut down.  This approach will likely benefit most students’ grades.  I reserve the option of modifying these grade guidelines for accuracy and fairness.  Know that my overarching philosophy is to give students the benefit of the doubt in light of these unprecedented events.

Sampling Surveys

Observational Study Design Glossary Assignment

Students will create a custom glossary by copying the definitions of terms from the two links below.  The list of terms to be included in the Glossary are provided in the first posted document below.  Understanding these terms will be critical when students soon begin designing their own sampling surveys.  These terms and symbol notations will comprise the majority of the vocabulary section of the first spring midterm.  ALL GLOSSARIES MUST BE HANDWRITTEN, & TERMS NUMBERED AS SHOWN .  THE GLOSSARY SHOULD BE ORGANIZED IN OUTLINE FORM AS SHOWN IN THE "LIST OF TERMS".
