Lecture no. 5 from the course: Meaning from Data: Statistics Made Clear
Taught by Professor Michael Starbird | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses
Any shaped curve can model a data set. This lecture looks at skewed and bimodal shapes, and describes other characteristically shaped classes of distributions, including exponential and Poisson. Each shape arises naturally in specific settings.
