The applets in this section of Statistical Java allow you to see how the Central Limit Theorem works. The main page gives the characteristics of five non-normal distributions (Bernoulli, Poisson, Exponential, U-shaped, and Uniform).

This course covers descriptive statistics, the foundation of statistics, probability and random distributions, and the relationships between various characteristics of data. Upon successful completion of the course, the student will be able to: Define the meaning of descriptive statistics and statistical inference; Distinguish between a population and a sample; Explain the purpose of measures of location, variability, and skewness; Calculate probabilities; Explain the difference between how probabilities are computed for discrete and continuous random variables; Recognize and understand discrete probability distribution functions, in general; Identify confidence intervals for means and proportions; Explain how the central limit theorem applies in inference; Calculate and interpret confidence intervals for one population average and one population proportion; Differentiate between Type I and Type II errors; Conduct and interpret hypothesis tests; Compute regression equations for data; Use regression equations to make predictions; Conduct and interpret ANOVA (Analysis of Variance).

Welcome to 6.041/6.431, a subject on the modeling and analysis of random phenomena and processes, including the basics of statistical inference. Nowadays, there is broad consensus that the ability to think probabilistically is a fundamental component of scientific literacy. For example: The concept of statistical significance (to be touched upon at the end of this course) is considered by the Financial Times as one of "The Ten Things Everyone Should Know About Science". A recent Scientific American article argues that statistical literacy is crucial in making health-related decisions. Finally, an article in the New York Times identifies statistical data analysis as an upcoming profession, valuable everywhere, from Google and Netflix to the Office of Management and Budget. The aim of this class is to introduce the relevant models, skills, and tools, by combining mathematics with conceptual understanding and intuition.

Ideally a census will be able to provide answers to many questions about a population. However, a census is impractical in many ways. So we need to rely on information drawn from a carefully chosen random sample of individuals/objects from the population. Such information may include sample statistics - proportion, mean, median, standard deviation, correlation, distribution, etc. The downside of the sampling approach is that the information we get is bound to change when we take a different sample. Then how can we ensure that we can make reliable inference about the population using only the sample information we got from our sample? The answer lies in the sampling distribution of the statistic which allows us, under certain assumptions, to make predictions about its values. These predictions, in turn, can be compared with the actual values obtained in the sample.Learning Objectives:Sampling Distribution of the Sample MeanSampling Distribution of the Sample ProportionCentral Limit Theorem, its assumptions and conclusion.
