C onfidence Intervals CI = point estimate ± margin of error Where margin of error = critical value x SE population point parameter estimate ± critical value x SE Sample Size Determination: whole number answer ____________________________________________________________________ | | Proportion Z = positive critical value: invNorm( 1 - α / 2 ) Mean α is area outside confidence interval Critical Values: Remember α is the area outside of the confidence area under the normal curve. Zcv: needed for Z-intervals and Sample Size determination Find the percentile at the upper boundary of the confidence area under the normal curve. α = 1.00 C-level (as a decimal) % tile = 1.0 α /2 Put percentile into invNorm( % tile ) and solve for Zcv , which tells you how many SD's away from center the CI boundary is located.

    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.
