What is statistics?
Statistics is the science of data. It involves collecting, organizing, summarizing, analyzing, and
interpreting conclusions from data.
Some IMPORTANT terms:
a set of units (usually people, objects, transactions, or events) that we
2.3 Organizing Quantitative Data
To organize quantitative data, we first group the observations into CLASSES (also known as categories or
bins) and then construct frequency and relative-frequency distributions of the data.
The number of classes should be
3.2 Numerical Measures of Variability
To measure the spread in a data set, we use:
2. Standard Deviation
The range of a quantitative data set is equal to the largest measurement minus the smallest
Range=highest valuelowest valu
We learned how to gain useful information from raw data by organizing them into a frequency
distribution and then presenting the data by using various graphs. Now we want to learn some
statistical methods that can be used to summarize data.
2.5 Using the Mean and Standard Deviation to Describe Data
Using the mean and standard deviation to describe data: Chebyshevs Rule
Chebyshevs Rule applies to any data set, regardless of the shape of the frequency distribution of the
Distribution of a Data Set
The distribution of a data set is a tale, graph, or formula that provides the values of the
observations and how often they occur.
Another aspect of the distribution of a quantitative data set is its shape.
The shape is importan
2.2 Organizing Qualitative Data
Qualitative variables are variables that can be placed into distinct categories, according to some
characteristics or attribute.
We call these different categories as classes.
Class: One of the categories into which qualita
We want the collected data to be unbiased. We use the following methods to select sample:
1. _ by obtaining information for the entire population of interest.
(Cons: Costly, Impossible, Impractical, and Time Consuming.)

3.4 The Five-Number Summary; Boxplots
The pth percentile is the number that divides the bottom p % of the data from the
top (100-p) %.
The 10th, 20th, 30th, . , 90th percentiles are called _ and
divide a data set into 10 equal parts.
The 20th, 40th, 60th,

: A quantitative variable whose possible values ca be listed. In
particular, a quantitative variable with
A LESSON IN METRICS
In the USA, the English system of measurement is commonly used and should be familiar to
students of Biology. This system uses inches (in.), feet (ft.), yards (yd.), and miles (mi.) to measure
distance; ounces (oz.), pounds (lb.), and
