Why Use Statistics? 1 - Handling Variability

thumbnail image

ETMA Annual Awards 1997 - Winner Graphics Craft Award. This series of four video modules highlights the relevance of statistics to the science subjects and teaches the basic statistical methods required. "Real life" situations are used to illustrate the relevance of statistics to a variety of disciplines, while animated graphics help explain the theoretical principles and clarify the processes involved. Exercise pauses are provided for students at regular intervals and teachers' notes with exercises accompany this series. The underlying theme of these modules is that variability is a fact of scientific life and that statistics enables you both to handle this variability and to draw suitable inferences from it. Ideal viewing for undergraduate medical students and anyone wanting to master statistics with an applied viewpoint. Module 1:Handling variability. This module uses blood pressure measurement to explain systematic and random errors, and bias and random variation
