I’m thoroughly disgusted with STATISTICS. Yes, it’s kicking my arse in an ugly way. I’ve got the three hour final due Monday night, but I can’t even get to that because of all the ridamndiculous (new word) equations I have to do in the regular weekly work. And I LOVE MATH. This is not math, this is the worst most painful “educational tool” ever invented and I do believe I’m about to make my very first collegiate D…the hopes of a C are still there, but barely, and the worst part is that there are SO MANY OTHER THINGS I’D RATHER BE DOING THIS WEEKEND! Ok…whew….focus girl. You can do this, says my inner guardian angel….but I don’t wanna, says my inner she-devil.
Probabilities, least square lines, y intercepts, oh my. And I suck at it,
so instead of torturing myself further, it’s time for a much needed PINTEREST break.
I need a serious laugh…
Enjoy! There are twenty pins in this slideshow, so grab a drink, sit back, relax, and LAUGH! Yes, that’s an order…LOL.
And Happy Bloggin’ ya’ll!
So yesterday was the first time I’ve ever just given up on my homework. I am in a class called “Applied Business Research and Statistics”. I worked on this homework Sunday, yesterday during my lunch break, and a few hours last night. I realize it’s a part of the MBA program and therefore, should be a bit challenging, but COME ON!!!!!! This is absolutely ri-damn-diculous.
Let me give you a couple examples:
And those are the easy ones. The really challenging “z table” type graph crap was in a weekly Math Lab…kinda sounds like Meth Lab, huh? But I guess when you complete an assignment, it closes it off for good and I can’t get back in it to show you an example.
Either way, and I know this is going to sound like a whiny teenager in the tenth grade but, what is the point? I will never be at work and someone will say to me, “Hey, out of all the people aged 25-40 in this division, what do you think the probability that the next person to walk through that door will be 32?”
I would calmly look at that person and say, “who gives a * and just sit here a minute to find out”. Geez. Much simpler and quicker than plotting and shading a graph and figuring out BS z tables. What the hell is a z table anyway? Is there a-y tables or are we being discriminatory? There’s the next lawsuit….on behalf of A-Y I’m suing for negligence!
You can see this class is making me a bit loopy. And everytime I think of how much I’m paying for this treatment…well, let me get on with my Tuesday. If you have any funny math examples that make me forget my troubles, please post them in a comment here….and thanks for cheering me up!
