Statistics

For those of you wondering, “What exactly is it that Steve does in that Statistics class?”  Wonder no more.  We are dealing with things like “confidence intervals,” “measures of central tendency,” and “statistical inference.”    I am dealing with equations such as:

SEM

 

and

Standard Deviation Equation

 

 

And the sad thing is that, after two weeks of class, I’m really starting to understand what these things mean.  I’m reading the textbook. I’m doing the homework.  But the thing that has been the most help is a book called, “Even You Can Learn Statistics: A Guide for Everyone Who Has Ever Been Afraid of Statistics” by David Levine and David Stephan.  I got it for free from Amazon.com when they were having a sale, but it costs $12.55 now ($8.79 for the Kindle edition).  If you need Stats in the future (or now), I highly recommend it.

About Steve Picray

I have been many things, but right now I am a registered nurse attempting to pay off my debt so that, God willing, I can be a pastor again someday. I have a wife and three kids. I am a conservative Christian (of the Baptist variety). This blog is about me: the things that happen to me, the things that interest me, and the things that bother me. If you have a question, just e-mail me at spicray AT gmail DOT com. God Bless!
