In honor of my Math Geek bf who passed his Actuarial Exam today (yay to him!), I decided to hunt down something math related on Etsy. I found something that was rather cute, though I don' t remember learning about it in school (me being an English major tries to ignore math formulas like the swine flu).
I present to you the T-Distribution plushie:According to the seller's description:
"The normal distribution comes in really handy when computing confidence intervals and performing hypothesis test, when you have a large enough sample. But when your sample is too small, you'll get better results by using the t-distribution. "
Right. Because I understood that. Regardless, the plushie is cute and comes with it's very own formula in the back:
Yup, makes total sense to me. Anyhow, if you have a math geek in your life, you can get this for him/her for a total of $8.00. That's quite a bargain, if you're willing to take an hour long explanation after giving them this gift on just what a t-distribution is.
