From mean, median, mode to distribution curves and random variables. Students will learn everything necessary to become comfortable and confident statisticians. This Standard Deviants School series will aid in the retention of key concepts by making statistics approachable and enjoyable. The DVD Super Pack contains programs 1-9 plus companion CD-ROM:Module 1: The Basics
What is statistics? Aside from baseball and betting, what is it used for? The Standard Deviants explain the basics of this fascinating subject.Module 2: Distribution Curves
With a little magic, you'll learn statistics without the usual mumbo-jumbo. You'll discover how to transform a confusing lump of numbers into an easy-to-understand picture, like distribution curves and stem-and-leaf displays.Module 3: Variability and Standard Deviation
Ever feel like you're not ordinary? Then you'll understand how numbers feel when we talk about measures of variability and standard deviation. Next, it's the mysterious z-score. What could it be? You'll find out! Module 4: Probability
What's the chance you'll draw a face card out of a 52-card deck? That's one of many questions related to probability! Find out about probability and more.Module 5: Random Variables
The Standard Deviants cover discrete and continuous random variables like Baryshnikov covers the dance floor. Languish not, for variance, standard deviation and other linchpins of statistical learning will also present themselves for your enjoyment. Module 6: The Binomial Formula
The Standard Deviants revisit the binomial formula. And believe it or not, you won't need a pen or paper! We'll show show you some handy tricks using clear explanations and fancy graphics. No mess, no boredom, just old-fashioned fun and a bit of rhythmics.Module 7: Working with Distributions
More about continuous random intervals as the Standard Deviants walk you from point A to point B. On the horizon is the dynamic duo of distributions: normal and uniform. These two distributions sizzle more than hotcakes on a radiator. Finally, we'll take a quick sample of sampling.Module 8: Statistics Tricks
Find out how to employ the empirical rule, command the confidence coefficient and exercise the error of estimation. And you'll learn what we call the meanest of the mean: the mean of the sampling distribution.Module 9: Statistics Errors
The Standard Deviants cover null hypotheses, conquer the different types of hypothesis tests and slay the two-headed tyrant of terror: Type I and type II errors. But we won't go it alone- our old allies z-score and his compatriot the t-statistic will make a reappearance.Statistics Companion CD
