Chapters 1,2, and partial 3 Review 1. Define statistics: the Art & Science of learning from Data 2. Say our class has 25 students. We gathered data and put them on 3x5 cards. Then during a lecture, I use 10 of the cards to estimate the average height of the class. Identify a. The population (the class of 25 students) b. The sample (the 10 students) c. The variable (student height) d. The subjects (the students) e. The proportion of the population sampled (10/25 = 0.4) f. The parameter (the average height of the class) g. The statistic (the average height of the sample of 10 students) h. The inference (that the sample height was an estimate of the class height).

### What students are saying

• 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.
