Whew, my business statistics class is done. And yeah, my brain still works but apparently my processing speed and storage capacity is quite a byte less than the 20 year olds in the class as I was the second to last one finished with the exam! I learned all sorts of new terms and symbols that I will never use again like:
Symbol Statistics Real Life
μ (“mu”) the mean of a population parameter What a cat says
α (alpha) the level of significance Dominant Dog
σ (sigma) standard deviation maker of faucets
Χ (chi) Chi square distribution Chinese for life energy
β (beta) symbol for Type II error defunct taping format
Σ (sumation) “sum of” sideways “M”
√ square root means “that’s done”
Isn’t it interesting that one X means “life energy” and XXX denotes moonshine (or porno), and XOXO means kisses and hugs?
Sorry – There is just no way to be clever after a statistics class!
To fully understand why I even bother taking these classes, watch for upcoming excerpts on aging and the brain!
