Number Theory Question #1

So here is a cheeky question with regards to cryptography, its the basis of public key encryption in Cryptography. I had a student asked about cryptography once, its a really interesting and [...]

Sampling & Survey #3 – Simple Random Sampling

Today we shall look at the first sampling method we introduced: Simple Random Sampling. Recall that we mentioned that this is the most basic form of probability sampling since it provides the [...]

Sampling & Survey #2 – Simple Probability Samples

So recall that we are interested on the statistical aspects of taking and analysing a sample, and a good sample will be representative in the sense that characteristics of interest in the [...]

Customer Analytics #1 – Introduction

I’ll dive straight into what is customer analytics using an example. Consider that Pixar calls me and says about a Disney film, that they want to for instance, predict how many people are [...]

Vectors Question #1

Since I’m at the topic of Vectors for most of my JC1 classes, I thought I share an interesting question regarding it. Yes, some students do tell me the questions aren’t really [...]

Sampling & Survey #1 – Introduction

This is a new series (this is essentially post-graduate materials, meaning you need strong statistical background at university level) on Sampling and Survey. I know many JC students will think, [...]

Application Question (Philosophy)
