Obtain a calculator to do simple calculations, then go to https://kcpt.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/mmpt-math-ee-inturban/two-way-tables-and-associations/#.WRZg528rIz1. There you will find an interactive applet that allows you to go through an example of how to use bivariate tables to make comparisons and further understand your data. To launch the Identifying Associations applet, click “Launch.” The interactive active will use flash and your audio device.
