MATH PROBLEM OF THE WEEK
A research assistant randomly selected 75 undergraduate students from the list of all students enrolled in the psychology-degree program at a large university. She asked each of the 75 students, “How many minutes per day do you typically spend reading?” The mean reading time in the sample was 89 minutes, and the margin of error for this estimate was 4.28 minutes. Another research assistant intends to replicate the survey and will attempt to get a smaller margin of error. Which of the following samples will most likely result in a smaller margin of error for the estimated mean time students in the psychology-degree program read per day?
A) 40 randomly selected undergraduate psychology-degree program students
B) 40 randomly selected undergraduate students from all degree programs at the college
C) 300 randomly selected undergraduate psychology-degree program students
D) 300 randomly selected undergraduate students from all degree programs at the college
E) 340 randomly selected undergraduate students from all degree programs at the college

BOOK OF THE MONTH
Without Precedent by J.D. Trafford
How much would you give up to get justice for your family?
Matthew Daley is a Manhattan corporate lawyer at the top of his game. As the first defense attorney on call to get pharmaceutical companies out of trouble, Matt is rising in the judicial system exactly as he planned. Until his sister dies of a heroin overdose.
Now, torn between conscience and career, the newly minted law partner faces a critical choice: defend the very companies that manufactured the addictive drugs, or give up his fiancée and his hard-won dream job to fight for justice in his sister’s name.
Returning to his blue-collar hometown with a ragtag band of law-school misfits by his side, Matt squares off against a team of New York corporate attorneys in a high-stakes.
