Statistics I. Statistics is divided into 2 branches A.Descriptive Statistics     -goal is to present the data in a way that’s easy to  understand 1. Central Tendency 2. Variability 3. Tables 4. Graphs 5. z-scores 6. The Normal Curve 7. Correlations B.Inferential Statistics     -use descriptive statistics and probability theory to  make judgments about reality 1. Making judgments from data 2. Tests of significance
