Description:

Last week there was an accident at the Waterfront Amusement Park in Bay City, resulting in the death of two teenagers. The owners of the amusement park have charged that if ambulances had responded more quickly, the two teens would have survived. The students’ task is to compare two ambulance companies on the basis of their timely response to Emergency 911 dispatches. Students must use appropriate graphs or measures of center and spread or both to present a persuasive argument for choosing one of the ambulance companies over the other. Included is a sample solution.
