I’m studying statistics

But these words keep flooding my ears

I’m writing you a song

But this is all I hear

There’s a 100% probability

That your z-scores all add up to zero

You’re my one and only standard deviation

Imagining you’re always at the peak

If my normal curve holds true

You’re my population mean

That I can always lean on

My t-scores doesn’t help a lot

My confidence interval is at 99%

You’re the only standard error

In my sampling distribution of two means

My degrees of freedom varies

I don’t have your sigma

So I tend to use my t-distribution

I don’t need a one-tailed test when I’m with you

Even the two-tailed test doesn’t seem to fit you

My means and median always mix when I’m with you

I don’t know what to do

I’m studying statistics

But all I can think of is you

0.000000
0.000000

Poets Rally Week 27 awards,

All 5 4 u, enjoy!

Happy Monday,

Rally week 28 will be September 9-15β¦..Welcome!

You really makes me happy with your piece. You can’t really concentrate of studying statistics if your heart is craving something. You wonderfully integrated statistic into your masterpiece. Job well done.

I LOVED THIS!!!!!! It brought back my statistics days, but wonderfully written. It was funny and charming! Well done.

How fun! Reminded me of all I’ve forgotten (chosen to forget) but remember enough to enjoy it. Be glad you’re studying it in the age of computers. Imagine having to do all the calculations yourself…but then, I’m giving away my age, aren’t I?

Beautiful adaptation of Math. Personally I can’t follow math and only recognized some of the language but you made me want to add me into the equation bringing my own variable. Great work luv.

Creative and clever.

Great job

Mathematical romance can be so promising!
