    We want to calculate a chi-square statistic and compare it with the critical value
    to determine whether or not GPA is significantly related to another of the factors
    being studied (so as not to completely discount the survey data). They chose to
    examine the relationship between the GPA of students and the teacher they had. They need
    to determine whether or not teacher choice impacts a student's GPA.
    1. Utilize the data provided to determine with 95% confidence whether or not the choice of
    teacher affects a student's GPA.
    2. Write up the null hypothesis statement. "Hypothesis statement?"
    3. Calculate the chi-square statistic and compare that with the critical value for chi-square at a 95% confidence.

    4. Write up your hypothesis conclusion.

    Data:

    # of Students w/ Given GPA
    Teacher 2.01 - 2.50 2.51 - 3.00 3.01 - 3.50 3.51 - 4.00
    A 68 74 73 78 = 293
    B 70 73 75 77 = 295
    C 69 75 72 76 = 292

    Total 207 222 220 231
