    standard normal curve between z = 0 and z = 1.65. Answer: The value 1.65 may be written as 1.6 to .05, and by locating 1.6 under the column labeled z in the standard normal distribution table (Appendix 2) and then moving to the right of 1.6 until you come under the .05 column, you find the area .450 . This area is expressed as 2. Find the area under the standard normal curve between z = -1.65 and z = 0. Answer: The area may be represented as . Since the normal curve

    analysis in economics, event history analysis in sociology and medical researchers give it the name of survival analysis. Survival analysis is used because the survival data are generally not symmetrically distributed, so it can not follow the normal distribution. The survival data depend on the time and it render standard methods in which the survival times are frequently censored [1]. Censored data arises when the study end and the patient still alive, a patient is lost to follow-up during the study

    Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) is a statistical method used to test differences between two or more means. Though it is called "Analysis of Variance" but actually it is "Analysis of Means." ANOVA was developed by Ronald Fisher in 1918 and is the extension of the t and the z test. Before the use of ANOVA, the t-test and z-test were commonly used. But the problem with the T-test is that it cannot be applied for more than two groups. This test is also called the Fisher analysis of variance, which

I understand how to calculate the SEM (simply divide the standard deviation of the sample by the square root of the sample size minus one). I understand that SEM is not the same as standard deviation. I also recognize that if the sample size is increased, the standard error of the

    In Plato’s Republic, Socrates and his peers attempt to define justice. Unlike the definitions that his peers give, Socrates is searching to define justice as a structure, not a set of behaviors. Socrates uses a tripartite city-soul analogy to define justice and show that it is found when there is harmony between the three parts of the city—guardians, auxiliaries, producers—mirrored to the three parts of the soul—reason, spirit, appetite. Although Socrates provides a well-structured account of justice

    Incorporating Continuous Assessment with Exams Examinations have been the gold standard for measuring the performance of students at the university level in the educational system. However, it may be possible that continuous assessment is more accurate for measuring overall student performance due to the fact that students are given different types of tasks to assess their knowledge, such as homework, papers, and quizzes. Exams have many pros and cons, but measuring a student’s performance solely

Although findings related to learning disabilities date back in the 1800s, Learning Disabilities is still a new area of Special Education and there is no single agreed upon definition of it yet. One influential definition that is accepted by most educators

    Sound is measured in units called decibels. The sound of a quiet room at night is measured at approximately 20 decibels. However, the maximum volume of sound on some MP3 players as well as loud music that is played at various nightclubs is measured at 110 decibels. Many ear specialists claim that exposure to noise levels above 85 decibels can damage hearing and cause hearing loss. This is because loud noise, which includes loud music, damages and eventually kills the hair cells in the cochlear because

    data that are collected at lower levels of measurement (nominal and ordinal scales). They have lower efficiency and do not require homogeneity of variance as well as normally distributed population. In short, nonparametric statistical tests are distribution-free statistical procedures and are less powerful. Also, they do not require the stringent conditions for parametric tests. Examples of nonparametric tests include Mann-Whitney, Wilcoxon test, Kruskal-Wallis test, sign test, median test, rank order

    the dynamical system into a regular stationary process produces such a sequence, then the dynamical system is called a Bernoulli system. 1.6.1 Deterministic Chaos Small differences in initial conditions (such as those due to rounding errors in numerical computation) yield widely diverging outcomes for chaotic systems, rendering long-term prediction impossible in general. This happens even though these systems are deterministic, meaning that their future behavior is fully determined by their initial

    Developing models based on the population data are called population modeling (pop modeling), where sparse sampling would be sufficient to obtain required data for modeling. Using population PK models, population kinetics parameters (volume of distribution (V), clearance (CL) etc.) and variability, as well as individual PK parameters can be obtained. Inter individual variability can be tested by adding them to the model as ‘covariates’. To assess drug effect such as adverse effect, biomarkers, change

    The Stroop Effect is a test that tests the mental state of the person. For this experiment, I will test the reaction time between the test when the color and word are the same (Matching) and when the color and word are different (Mis-Matching). Next, you see the differences in the reaction times and average up all the times. After, you do that step three times, see the difference between the 1st try and the 3rd try. How is reaction time ( which is how fast you can do something) related to the Stroop

    Introduction For two days, on the 14th and 15th of April, a field excursion to Hastings Point, New South Wales was conducted. At Hastings Point, topography, abiotic factors and organism distribution were measured and recorded, with the aim of drawing links between the abiotic factors of two ecosystems (rocky shore and sand dunes), the organisms which live in them, and the adaptations they have developed to cope with these conditions. Within these two ecosystems, multiple zones were identified and
