T-Tests: A comprehensive introduction

In this post, we define the t-test in statistics, explain what different t-tests exist, and demonstrate by example how we can use them to find the differences between means in various scenarios. What is a T-Test? The

What Math is Required for Machine Learning?

You are probably here because you are thinking about entering the exciting field of machine learning. But on your road to mastery, you see a big roadblock that scares you. It is called math. Perhaps your last

Chi-Square Test for Independence and Goodness of Fit

In this post, we will introduce the chi-square test. We discuss how to calculate a chi-square statistic, how to perform a chi-square test for independence, and finally how to use the chi-square test for goodness of fit.

Type 1 and Type 2 Error

When you are testing hypotheses, you might encounter type 1 and type 2 errors. Identifying them and dealing with them is essential for setting up statistical testing scenarios. They also play a huge role in machine learning.

Z Score Table for Confidence Intervals

Negative Z Table These are z-values to the left of the mean. Positive Z Table These are z-values to the right of the mean. Two-Sided Z-Score Table These are z_Value to the left and the right of

Student’s T-Distribution

In this post we introduce student’s t-distribution and learn how to construct t-confidence intervals. The t distribution is usually applied when you want to estimate the mean of normally distributed data but the sample size is small

Chi-Square Distribution and Degrees of Freedom

In this post, we introduce the Chi-Square distribution discuss the concept of degrees of freedom learn how to construct Chi-Square confidence intervals If you want to know how to perform chi-square testing for independence or goodness of

Hypothesis Testing and P-Values

Hypothesis testing in statistics allows you to make informed decisions using data.In a hypothesis testing scenario, you have a null hypothesis that represents the status quo. Through the collection and analysis of data, you try to refute
