In this lesson, we look at the different errors that are possible in hypothesis testing, their consequences and assess probabilities based on a hypothetical alternate mean. The power of the test is addressed and its relationship to a type II error. We also consider the values of power and probabilities associated with Type I and Type II errors and discuss what is acceptable in practice.

Welcome!
I am excited to impart knowledge for your entry level statistics and AP statistics courses.
I am a graduate of the University of Nebraska where I earned my bachelors degree in Mathematics and Actuarial Science. I furthered my education in Texas and earned my Masters of Science degree in Statistics from the University of Houston Clear Lake.
My first career began in Galveston, Texas where I worked as an actuary for American National Insurance Company from January 1985 – August 1992. After eight years in the actuarial profession I decided to turn my efforts toward teaching. I taught the next eight years at two different public schools in the Houston area. After eight years of instruction, I switched my career path back to the actuarial field. I moved to Omaha, Nebraska for two years and worked with Central States Health and Life Company as a valuation actuary. My family and I returned to Texas where I continued the actuarial profession, once again, for American National Insurance Company in Galveston for the next three years. I currently teach AP Statistics and college math courses for a school in the Houston area.
I am excited to bring the classroom to you. I have always had a passion to teach and enjoy it very much. I hope you find the videos both educational and helpful!
Sincerely,
Jerry Linch
