a) Set: A Set is any well defined collection of distinct objects.
E.g C = {4, 2, 1, 3} and D = {blue, white, red}are sets of natural numbers and set of colors respectively.
b) Element of Set: A number, letter, item or any other object contained in a Set is called Element of a Set. In a) above, elements of Set C are 1,2,3 and 4.
c) Order of a Set: are special binary relations. Suppose that P is a set and that ≤ is a relation on P, Then ≤ is a partial order if it is reflexive, antisymmetric and transitive.
d) Null Set: is the unique set having no elements; its size or cardinality (count of elements in a set) is zero. Common notations for the empty set include "{}", " ", and " ".
e) Finite Set: a finite set is a set that has a finite number of elements. For example,

is a finite set with five elements. The number of elements of a finite set is a natural number (non-negative integer),and is called the cardinality of the set. A set that is not finite is called infinite. For example, the set of all positive integers is infinite:


f) Proper Subset: A proper subset is a grouping of numbers in which all the numbers for two quantities have the same numbers, but are not equal.

g) Data: are values of qualitative or quantitative variables belonging to a set of items.

h) Statistics: Statistics is a branch of mathematics that deals with the collection, organization and interpretation of data.
i) Probability: is a measure or estimation of how likely it is that something will happen or that a statement is true. Probabilities are given a value between 0 (0% chance or will not happen) and 1 (100% chance or will happen). The higher the degree of probability, the more likely the event is to happen, or, in a longer series of samples, the greater the number of times such event is expected to happen.

You suspect the company of falsely advertising the benefits of taking their pills. Suppose you take a sample of 100 product users and find that only 5% have lost at least 10 pounds. Is this enough to prove your claim? What about if 72% had lost at least 10 pounds? Goal: 9.1 Elements of a Hypothesis Test 1. Assumptions 2.

...STAT 302 – Statistical Methods Lecture 8 Dr. Avishek Chakraborty Visiting Assistant Professor Department of Statistics Texas A&M University Using sample data to draw a conclusion about a population • Statistical inference provides methods for drawing conclusions about a population from sample data. • Two key methods of statistical inference: o o Confidence intervals Hypothesis tests (a.k.a., tests of significance) Hypothesis Testing: Evaluating the effectiveness of new machinery at the Bloggs Chemical Plant • Before the installation of new machinery, long historical records revealed that the daily yield of fertilizer produced by the Bloggs Chemical Plant had a mean μ = 880 tons and a standard deviation σ = 21 tons. Some new machinery is being evaluated with the aim of increasing the daily mean yield without changing the population standard deviation σ. Hypothesis Testing: Evaluating the effectiveness of new machinery at the Bloggs Chemical Plant Null hypotheses • The claim tested by a statistical test is called the null hypothesis. The test is designed to assess the strength of the evidence against the null hypothesis. Usually the null hypothesis is a statement of “no effect” or “no difference”, that is, a statement of the status quo. Alternative hypotheses • The claim about the population that we are trying to find evidence for is the alternative hypothesis. The alternative hypothesis is one-sided if it states that a parameter is larger than...

...Lab 3 Due on Monday, June 23 FROM DATA TO DECISION Listed below are the ages of actresses and actors at the times that they won Oscars for the categories of Best Actress and Best Actor. The ages are listed in chronological order by column, so that corresponding locations in the two tables are from the same year. (Notes: In 1968 there was a tie in the Best Actress category, and the mean of the two ages is used; in 1932 there was a tie in the Best Actor category, and the mean of the two ages is used. These data are suggested by article “Ages of Oscar-winning Best Actors and Actress,” by Richard Brown and Gretchen Davis, Mathematics Teacher magazine. In that article, the year of birth of the award winner was subtracted from the year of the awards ceremony, but the ages in the tables below are based on the birth date of the winner and the date of the awards ceremony.)

...Stay at Home Moms -Breaking the Stereotypes 9/13/2015 In today’s society, no longer is it common for a woman to make the decision to stay at home and school her children. There was a time when this was far from taboo, but in the year 2015, stay at home mothers have found themselves in situations where they have to prove their worth. Women in the SAHMs (Stay at home mothers) community are labeled as lazy, are said to have it easy, are dumb, moochers, and many other stereo types. In all actuality the life of a SAHM is quite the contraire. In the 20th century the term “house wife” was more so used than the term Stay at home mom. Now, in the 21st century we changed that term because it seemed as if we knew nothing but the walls inside our homes. We are married to our husbands, not our houses. Women in the 1950’s rose to the term house wife and wore it proudly. During this time, the women who worked outside of the home were looked at as some scientific phenomenon that we didn't understand. The role of women in the 1950’s was repressive and constrictive in many ways. Society placed high importance and many expectations on behavior at home as well as in public. Women were supposed to fulfill certain roles, such as a caring mother, a diligent homemaker, and an obedient wife. The perfect mother was supposed to stay home and nurture so society would accept them. (R.C.2005) “Most of the time, when people ask, I tell them that I work from home.
