MATH 1342 - Lab 2, Chapter 3 - Descriptive Statistics and Shapes of Distribution - Dave Rice Name___________________________________________ Each problem is worth 5 points. 1. During our semester in statistics, we will be studying inferential statistics. In Chapter 1 , we learned the basic premises behind inferential statistics. Write a sentence or two summarizing inferential statistics in your own words. 2. The inferential statistics that we will cover in our class will all be parametric statistics. Parametric statistics require that certain requirements about the distribution must be met by the sample data values. We have learned some different distributions in Chapter 2 . Sketch and name the FOUR different distributions that we have learned. MATH 1342 - Lab 2 1 Dave Rice

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
