I’m studying and need help with a Psychology question to help me learn.
It is well known that a statistics course is one of the requirements of a psychology major. But why is that? Using information provided in this week’s reading and knowledge that you have gathered in prior courses (MAT 240 or other stats courses you have taken), indicate why the study of statistics is useful to a person who majors in psychology.
In addition, discuss a personal experience in which statistics were used. This experience could be related to education, insurance, developmental milestones for a child, etc., and it could entail your use of statistics or someone else’s use of statistics.
