Linear model

in R. Oh no, outliers

sprinkle like rain drops!

Will I pass this class?

make a null hypothesis

p-value is small!

P and F values

why do they still confuse me?

One minute essay

Bootstrap the data

regress into regression

dodge type I errors

random samples rule

in the world of statistics

---overcome unknowns

larger sample size

with central limit theorem

approaches normal

t, F, p, s-hat

all tell of a relation

not the direction

A grouping of rules

that we use to understand

large sets of data

ANOVA for me

using an SPSS

makes me happier

s ta tis ti cs

will be the end of me now

who can save my soul

Now I am waiting

SPSS crunches stats

What will it tell me?

Assume Red Sox suck

Yet, they beat the Yankees; called

--- a type II error!

Rejection of null

after F-values compared

Tukey test follows

Stats in McConnell

Like passing a kidney stone

Sinking or swimming

A data sample

Ink equations from the text

Calculating stats

Oh dear statistics

Your formulas are complex

--Yet fascinate me

You are important

Your real significance

enlightens the world

One-way ANOVA

plug and chug computer style

the results appear!

I like stats because

I learn so much about math

Just kidding, it stinks :-)

But is it normal?

Independent groups t test

Now I can use you.

asking questions in

behavioral science

calculating answers.

Sometimes confusing

Always three or more levels

One-way ANOVA

Statistical tests

rely on assumptions that

are necessary

OH GOD CRAZY STATS

Analyzing everything

Chill guys, its just math

ANOVA, Tukey

inferential statistics

use SPSS

Statistics is hard

But lab is very helpful

I want to go home.

One way ANOVA

greater than t though smaller

many become one.

So many numbers

So little time left,

Whats that equation?

Which letter means what?

All things you must know in stats

to reject the null.

Numbers make no sense

But with Horton and Palmer

Ah! Let there be light!

One way ANOVA

Reject null hypothesis

Now draw conclusions

t test, z scores, means

what do the numbers imply?

David and Nick know.

I love ANOVAs

every morning I cant wait

Go SPSS!

Oh eta-squared you

are easy to calculate

yet give much info

Different tests for

each different condition

Find out relations

So much work to do

for the fun-filled ANOVA

Thanks SPSS!

I am confident.

P-value's significant

Wiggle words can't lie.

P-values are great.

They help us to reject nulls

or fail to reject.

Simpson's paradox

Is only the beginning

Getting dangerous

StatCrunch does not know.

SPSS is ready.

But I am still lost.

Regression's wonder -

Multiple in nature with

"y" against "x"-es

standard error or

standard deviation or

root mse hmmm

Am I near normal?

Is my n large enough to

make inferences?

Stats are quite useful

But can be tricky sometimes

Three meanings of “p”

Statistics is fun

Interpretive dance of math

Useful for research

The only math class

In which we use so many

different letters

Margin of error

Find the z and t scores quick

I am confident

Found correlation

Careful, it's not causation

Variables may lurk

Models recently

Are getting frightfully thin

They fail the F-test

Stats are not psychic

Can’t go beyond our data

Don’t extrapolate

Shape, center, spread, range

I would like a picture please

describes intro stats

To be normal or

not to be normal is the

major question here

r-squared adjusts

Check model's validity with

"p" "se" values.

Null hypothesis

Reject or not to reject

I am on that quest

It is hard

calculating confidence intervals

without using technology

How far from the mean-

sign of abnormality

of data value

Oh statistics rocks

Friday afternoon giggles

With Nick it is fun

Ipod shuffle lab

made me question my ipod

we used to be friends

I am ninety five

percent confident that stats

will drive me crazy

More than one outcome

is possible, thats why we

do a two tailed test
