Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

, [L3] , , ,

6. Step 6. Store this value in [L4].

, , [L4] ,

7. Step 7. Calculate the critical value using the equation above.

, , , , , [V] , , [LIST] , , , , [L4] , , ,

8. Step 8. Verify that the calculator displays: 7.642669563. This is the critical value.
9. Step 9. Compare the absolute value of each residual value in [L3] to 7.64 . If the absolute value is greater than 7.64, then the (x, y) corresponding point is an outlier. In this case, none of the points is an outlier.

To obtain estimates of y for various x-values:

There are various ways to determine estimates for "y". One way is to substitute values for "x" in the equation. Another way is to use the on the graph of the regression line.

TI-83, 83+, 84 instructions for distributions and tests

Distributions

Access DISTR (for "Distributions").

For technical assistance, visit the Texas Instruments website at http://www.ti.com and enter your calculator model into the "search" box.

Binomial Distribution

• binompdf(n,p,x) corresponds to P(X = x)
• binomcdf(n,p,x) corresponds to P(X ≤ x)
• To see a list of all probabilities for x: 0, 1, . . . , n, leave off the "x" parameter.

Poisson Distribution

• poissonpdf(λ,x) corresponds to P(X = x)
• poissoncdf(λ,x) corresponds to P(X ≤ x)

Continuous Distributions (general)

• uses the value -1EE99 for left bound
• uses the value 1EE99 for right bound

Normal Distribution

• normalpdf(x,μ,σ) yields a probability density function value (only useful to plot the normal curve, in which case "x" is the variable)
• normalcdf(left bound, right bound, μ,σ) corresponds to P(left bound < X < right bound)
• normalcdf(left bound, right bound) corresponds to P(left bound < Z < right bound) - standard normal
• invNorm(p,μ,σ) yields the critical value, k: P(X < k) = p
• invNorm(p) yields the critical value, k: P(Z < k) = p for the standard normal

Student-t Distribution

• tpdf(x,df) yields the probability density function value (only useful to plot the student-t curve, in which case "x" is the variable)
• tcdf(left bound, right bound, df) corresponds to P(left bound < t < right bound)

Chi-square Distribution

• Χ2pdf(x,df) yields the probability density function value (only useful to plot the chi2 curve, in which case "x" is the variable)
• Χ2cdf(left bound, right bound, df) corresponds to P(left bound < Χ2 < right bound)

F Distribution

• Fpdf(x,dfnum,dfdenom) yields the probability density function value (only useful to plot the F curve, in which case "x" is the variable)
• Fcdf(left bound,right bound,dfnum,dfdenom) corresponds to P(left bound < F < right bound)

Tests and Confidence Intervals

Access STAT and TESTS.

For the Confidence Intervals and Hypothesis Tests, you may enter the data into the appropriate lists and press DATA to have the calculator find the sample means and standard deviations. Or, you may enter the sample means and sample standard deviations directly by pressing STAT once in the appropriate tests.

Confidence Intervals

• ZInterval is the confidence interval for mean when σ is known
• TInterval is the confidence interval for mean when σ is unknown; s estimates σ.
• 1-PropZInt is the confidence interval for proportion

Note:

The confidence levels should be given as percents (ex. enter "95" or ".95" for a 95% confidence level).

Hypothesis Tests

• Z-Test is the hypothesis test for single mean when σ is known
• T-Test is the hypothesis test for single mean when σ is unknown; s estimates σ.
• 2-SampZTest is the hypothesis test for 2 independent means when both σ's are known
• 2-SampTTest is the hypothesis test for 2 independent means when both σ's are unknown
• 1-PropZTest is the hypothesis test for single proportion.
• 2-PropZTest is the hypothesis test for 2 proportions.
• Χ2-Test is the hypothesis test for independence.
• Χ2GOF-Test is the hypothesis test for goodness-of-fit (TI-84+ only).
• LinRegTTEST is the hypothesis test for Linear Regression (TI-84+ only).

Note:

Input the null hypothesis value in the row below "Inpt." For a test of a single mean, "μ∅" represents the null hypothesis. For a test of a single proportion, "p∅" represents the null hypothesis. Enter the alternate hypothesis on the bottom row.
