**2020 Lynbrook Graduation Car Parade**

I wanted to thank you all for a fantastic year. It was a pleasure getting to know you and I'm very proud of all you accomplished in AP Statistics. As you leave Lynbrook remember that many problems can be straightened out with the whack of a log. Additionally, if you are in a small group and things don't quite seem Normal - proceed with caution! Have fun in college developing the skill sets to make your dreams come true.

Take care,

Mr. Iams

However, with a low X2 value (and high p-value) we don't declare independence we only declare their isn't evidence of an association. (Makes me think it should really be called chi-squared test for association).

FYI: In 1733 Abraham de Moivre, drawing on the work of Jacob and Nicolaus Bernoulli, calculus, and the underlying structure of Pascal's Triangle, demonstrated how a set of random drawings would distribute themselves around their average value. De Moivre's distribution is know today as a normal curve. It makes it possible to evaluate the probability that a given number of observations will fall within some specified bound around a true ratio.
