The Degree of Uncertainty Associated With a Statistical Inference.


August 26, 2009 by sandwichcontrol

Yesterday kicked my butt. Having Chemistry II, Probabilty/Statistics, and Psychology back to back to back is crazy. Luckily I have a 4 hour break before I go to Nutrition. Also, yesterday we reached the 3,500 view mark. That means that since March people have looked at my website, in amused horror, 3,500 times. That is much crazier than my class schedule. Back to class stuff. Chem II will be be a lot of hard work, but I can manage it. Psych 101 is a cake walk. Plus, I’ve got the best Psych teacher, who came back out of retirement, at our University teaching the class. It is such a large class that there are actually two teachers. I find that weird, but who am I to say anything about the insane way the College is run. Prob/Stats is going to be interesting. I haven’t quite pinned down the feel of the class. I will be able to tell you for sure after we start lecturing tomorrow. As far as Nutrition goes, the only thing that is going to be difficult about that class is that it only meets once a week. So, the work load has to be done quickly or else I will fall behind. I discovered very quickly that I am possibly the only person taking Nutrition because I like food. I am not taking it so much to learn about food as to learn about the “Nutritionist” view on food. At first glance, it seems like they approach food as simply the building blocks of our body and that they take no joy in the act of eating. Perhaps, as a scientist, I can agree with that. Food provides the energy and nutrients for me to survive. If that were strictly the case we would all eat bran and leafy green vegetables at every meal. But, that is not the case. I happen to enjoy an occasional open-face chili burger. Well, enough of that. I could go on for hours. The title for Today’s post is taken directly from my Prob/Stats textbook. Yeah, it is terrible trying to read it, which my instructor insists that we do. Ugh. Well, I’m off to work. More soon. ~SC
