The variance, and the skew—

Wait just a moment!

Here are the haikus that the Fall 2015 Math 137 students have permitted me to share.

Are you confident?

No, the data's not normal.

Your n is too small.

Probability

Is quite fun, but statistics

Make me think some more.

More distributions

Scary looking formulas

Made me cry a lot.

Normal, t-table

So many distributions

Which am I to use

Poisson is so mean

Lambda is the reason now

I get Poisson now.

t-distribution

Made for Guiness brewery

Used with small samples

The parameters

Have many meanings that help

A distribution

There are lots of things

To remember for the test

Such as regressions.

*Confidence Interval*

Sample size so large

Distributed normally

Nice to know sigma

Delightful fall math

Probability fo-mo

In spring semester.

**fo-mo slang for fear of missing out*
Probability

Stem and leaf during the fall

Cannot wait for spring

See distribution

Find the correct formula

Get the right answer.

Probability

Practice for the P Exam

Going to be tough.

t-distribution

And chi-square distribution

Degrees of freedom

Probs tells 'bout the world

Normal tells it all.

Poisson tells binomial.

Probability

Distributions, intervals

Has some fun problems!

Probability

Also some distributions

Mostly how to cry.

Distributions rock

Discrete and continuous

Don't get them confused!

For lots of data

It's fine to use a normal

To estimate things.

See you frequently

What an almighty friend

Normal distribution is.

Probability

Probability is such

A tricky subject.

Probability

Memorize distributions

Always do homework.

So many questions

About colored balls and dice

What is not to like?

Find a sample mean

Draw a modified boxplot

Stem-and-leaf for data.

You use the z-score

When we approximate

Distance from the mean.

Most important rule:

Probabilities above 1

Mean something is wrong.

Probability is used quite often,

I need it to pass actuary exams,

and now will not gamble.
