Educ. 48, No. 1, 23-28 (2014). 2014 MATYC Journal, Old Bethpage, NY EN K65 K45 0-1 population sample mean variance binomial distribution sampling distribution of the mean From the introduction: Statistics theory is the study of numerical properties of a population of numbers, the mean and standard deviation being properties of primary significance. We subsequently study proportions of a population of which each member belongs to one of two categorical groups. The statistical properties of proportions are, in general, the same as those pertaining to a particular population of numbers. College students in an introductory statistics course may wonder how these important proportions statistics relate to a population of numbers since most textbooks do not make this association. Hopefully, this presentation will be helpful to instructors of introductory statistics. This article presents a population of numbers, the statistics of which have the very same statistical properties of the proportions of a population comprised of two categorical groups.
