• Introduce standard error (s) for both sampling distribution models for proportions and means when we do not know the populations parameters p and σ.
• Demonstrate how to calculate standard error for a proportion.
• Demonstrate how to calculate standard error for a mean.
This packet introduces you to the concept of standard error, which is an estimate of our standard deviation. There is a video showing you how to calculate it, and a link to a page that shows why we use it.
This packet introduces you to standard deviation. There will be some new terminology. Some of the new terms are:
Here is a great page that talks about standard error and how it is very beneficial.
