Properties of estimators

This lecture has three major goals:

  1. Develop stronger knowledge and intuition about statistics.

  2. Provide you an understanding via the standard deviation case the work that statisticians do so that you can trust the “standard statistics” (i.e., most used) you will use and apply in most of your future professional careers.

  3. Acquire greater knowledge about how the other statistical frameworks we will learn in BIOL322 were developed. We won’t revisit all sample estimators, but the type of work that was done for the standard deviation can be “generalized” to most sample statistics.
