February 2015 Member Webinar: Probability Rules and Applications

by Karen Grace-Martin

Do you remember all those probability rules you learned (or didn’t) in intro stats? You know, things like the P(A|B)?While you may have thought that these rules were only about balls and urns (who pulls balls from urns anyway?), it’s actually not true.

It turns out that having a good understanding of these rules (as well as actually remembering them) does come in handy when you’re doing data analysis.

There are so many situations and methods in statistics that draw directly from those rules. Everything from p-values to logistic regression to maximum likelihood estimation are all direct applications of these rules. In this webinar, we’re going to review those rules, with examples of when they come up in statistical methods that you use and are learning.


Note: This webinar is an exclusive benefit for members of the Statistically Speaking Membership Program.
