Before the break, we introduced the t-distribution for hypothesis testing. This week we'll see how to use the t-distribution to make confidence intervals. We'll also review the material from before the break for Midterm 2 on Friday. Our goal for the remainder of the semester is to understand when and how to use all eight of the common statistical inference formulas. This week, we'll focus on the first two.

Monday, March 23

Goal. To introduce the t-distribution confidence interval formula: \[\bar{x} \pm t^* \frac{s}{\sqrt{n}}\] and also the t-Distribution table.

Here is an optional Kahn Academy video explaining t-distribution confidence intervals.

Wednesday, March 25

Goal. To review probability and hypothesis testing for the midterm on Friday.

I'll try to post solutions to the practice exam on Thursday.

I also posted suggested review problems for Midterm 2 before the break, but I wanted to give people more practice, especially if you don't have your textbook, so that's why I've posted a whole practice exam.

Thursday, March 26

Goal. Review practice midterm exam and answer any questions before the real midterm tomorrow.

Friday, March 27

I sent out a link to take Midterm 2 by e-mail this morning. Please let me know if you didn't get it.
