Overview of Statistics Flashcards

Overview of Statistics Flashcards

This flashcard set introduces you to important concepts in the study of statistics. Information covered includes types of statistics and sampling, and ways to analyze and understand data.

Summarizing Data Flashcards

Summarizing Data Flashcards

This set of flashcards will help you review basic statistical calculations that can be used to describe a set of data. This includes measures of central tendency and measures of how spread out the data are.

Tables and Plots Flashcards

Tables and Plots Flashcards

How data is presented can help you understand the data and make conclusions about it. In these flashcards, we review various ways to plot and tabulate data, including box plots, histograms, pie charts and bar graphs.

Probability Flashcards

Probability Flashcards

These flashcards will review how to do simple probability calculations, including permutations, combinations, and conditional probability. These will help you review basic probability problems associated with introductory statistics.

Discrete Probability Distributions Flashcards

Discrete Probability Distributions Flashcards

This set of flashcards will help you review discrete probability distribution and how it can be applied to solve problems related to events involving chance.

Continuous Probability Distributions Flashcards

Continuous Probability Distributions Flashcards

This set of flashcards focuses on understanding and completing problems related to normally distributed data, including approximating binomial probabilities.

Regression & Correlation Flashcards

Regression & Correlation Flashcards

Ever wonder how to describe and quantify the relationship between sets of observed data? In this flashcard set, we point out the key ideas by reviewing the very important statistical method called regression and correlation analysis.

Statistical Estimation Flashcards

Statistical Estimation Flashcards

Defining a sample and then measuring a statistic is great fun, especially when we can quantify something about the entire population from which the sample was taken. These flashcards review the concepts and methods of statistical estimation.

Hypothesis Testing in Statistics Flashcards

Hypothesis Testing in Statistics Flashcards

Methods for gathering data and making conclusions are at the heart of statistics. In these flashcards we review the statistical method called hypothesis testing.

Z-Scores & Standard Normal Curve Areas Statistical Table

10. Z-Scores & Standard Normal Curve Areas Statistical Table

In statistics, Z-scores are used to standardize the normal distribution across populations of different sizes with different raw values. These values will be placed on a table. This lesson will show you how to use that table.

Critical Values of the t-Distribution Statistical Table

11. Critical Values of the t-Distribution Statistical Table

In statistics, you can use t-tests to measure statistical difference between two groups. This table gives you the critical values needed to achieve statistical significance for given certain confidence levels (or values of α) and degrees of freedom. Use this statistical table to find the critical t-value required for statistical significance.

Binomial Probabilities Statistical Tables

12. Binomial Probabilities Statistical Tables

In statistics, binomial experiments are ones in which one of two outcomes may result. Given the number of trials in an experiment ''n'', you can use these binomial distribution tables to look up the probability of a certain number of successes in the whole experiment. Each row represents ''x'', the number of successes in the total experiment, and each column represents ''P'', the probability of an individual trial's success.
