Copyrights The Probability and Statistics EBook is a freely and openly accessible electronic book developed by SOCR and the general community. Chapter I: Introduction to Statistics The Nature of Data and Variation Although natural phenomena in the real life are unpredictable, the designs of experiments are bounded to generate data that varies because of intrinsic (internal to the system) or extrinsic (due to the ambient environment) effects.

Chapter 9 Chapter 9 Experimental Research (Reminder: Don’t forget to utilize the concept maps and study questions as you study this and the other chapters.) In this chapter we talk about what experiments are, we talk about how to control for extraneous variables, and we talk about two sets of experimental designs (weak designs and strong designs). (Note: In the next chapter we will talk about middle of the road experimental designs; they are better than the weak designs discussed in this chapter, and they are not as good as the strong designs discussed in this chapter. The middle of the road, or medium quality designs are called quasi-experimental designs.) It is important for you to remember that whenever an experimental research study is conducted the researcher's interest is always in determining cause and effect. The causal variable is the independent variable (IV) and the effect or outcome variable is the dependent variable (DV). The Experiment Independent Variable Manipulation Counterbalancing

Free Statistics Book Random: Probability, Mathematical Statistics, Stochastic Processes Welcome! Random (formerly Virtual Laboratories in Probability and Statistics) is a website devoted to probability, mathematical statistics, and stochastic processes, and is intended for teachers and students of these subjects. The site consists of an integrated set of components that includes expository text, interactive web apps, data sets, biographical sketches, and an object library. Please read the Introduction for more information about the content, structure, mathematical prerequisites, technologies, and organization of the project. Random is hosted at two sites: and Technologies and Browser Requirements This site uses a number of advanced (but open and standard) technologies, including HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript.

Social Reserch Methods Home ModernDive Getting Started - For Students This book was written using the bookdown R package from Yihui Xie (Xie 2016). In order to follow along and run the code in this book on your own, you’ll need to have access to R and RStudio. You can find more information on both of these with a simple Google search for “R” and for “RStudio.” An introduction to using R, RStudio, and R Markdown is also available in a free book here (Ismay 2016). It is recommended that you refer back to this book frequently as it has GIF screen recordings that you can follow along with as you learn. We will keep a running list of R packages you will need to have installed to complete the analysis as well here in the needed_pkgs character vector. You can run the library function on them to load them into your current analysis. Colophon The source of the book is available here and was built with versions of R packages (and their dependent packages) given below.

MA121: Introduction to Statistics Probabilities affect our everyday lives. In this unit, you will learn about probability and its properties, how probability behaves, and how to calculate and use it. You will study the fundamentals of probability and will work through examples that cover different types of probability questions. These basic probability concepts will provide a foundation for understanding more statistical concepts, for example, interpreting polling results. Though you may have already encountered concepts of probability, after this unit, you will be able to formally and precisely predict the likelihood of an event occurring given certain constraints. Probability theory is a discipline that was created to deal with chance phenomena. The skill of calculating probability allows us to make better decisions. We will also talk about random variables.

Probability & Statistics Probability & Statistics [Enter Course] Overview: This course introduces students to the basic concepts and logic of statistical reasoning and gives the students introductory-level practical ability to choose, generate, and properly interpret appropriate descriptive and inferential methods. We offer two versions of statistics, each with a different emphasis: Probability and Statistics and Statistical Reasoning. One of the main differences between the courses is the path through probability. In-Depth Description There are two versions of the OLI Statistics course: Probability and Statistics and Statistical Reasoning. Unit 1 Exploratory Data Analysis. Unit 2 Producing Data. Unit 3 Probability. Unit 4 Inference. The course is built around a series of carefully devised learning objectives that are independently assessed. This course contains only the StatTutor lab exercises.

McDonald's home page Research Interests The overall theme of the research in my lab is detecting the effects of natural selection on nuclear genes. This includes detecting the effects of balancing selection and directional selection on variation within populations, variation among populations, and variation among species, and it includes a mix of empirical and theoretical work. Prospective Students I am not seeking a graduate student or post doc for my lab at this time. I may have opportunities for undergraduates with a strong interest in evolutionary biology and a willingness to work independently. I will be glad to advise UD undergrads and others with an interest in evolutionary biology who are planning to apply to graduate schools. Current Projects Adaptation to global warming in enzyme allele frequencies: In the 1970s and 1980s, the technique of allozyme electrophoresis revealed patterns of allele frequency in several species that were associated with latitude.
