Learn about the Placebo Effect, Control Groups, and the Double-Blind Experiment


Quickly learn about bar charts, pie charts, histograms, stem-and-leaf plots, and learn about which type of graphical tool is appropriate for describing quantitative variables, and qualitative variables.


 

Note 1: The narrator in the Simple Learning Pro videos uses the term "categorical data" but in your course you'll see the term "qualitative data".

Note 2: Please skip time index 1:47 to 2:43. This video does not cover class boundaries (learned in chapter 2.1) so please skip this small section of the video to avoid confusion.

This video quickly demonstrates how to find and compare the mean, the median, and the mode. You'll also cover how the shape or skew of a distribution affects each of them.



Note: Your course will not cover Exhaustive Events so you can stop watching this video at time index 2:09
