Just got a 58% on my "Statistics for Strategy Problems" exam. I think I'm going to shoot myself. This class has become the bane of my existance!

Well that's reassuring. We're doing Regression right now, which so far is quite a bit easier.

Go talk to the prof, see what you need to do to get a passing grade in the class. Also go to office hours and get your homework looked at, even if you think you understand it. If they see that you really give a shit, they're more likely to nudge you up to passing.

"According to that statictis, you have a 90% chance of failing the rest of the class" Statistics predict for groups, not individuals.

Goddamn! We just had another test, and I really thought I knew my shit, but apparently not because I only got a 73%. This is the first semester I've actually been challenged, and I'm not doing too well as a result. :P I am a shitty student.

"Stats can include singular objects, like dice (die for singular?) "

Statistics predict for groups of data and not  on an individual outcome.

 

With a die yea there is a 1/6 chance. But in statistics terms the die would be rolled many times and data on this would be used.
