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.
