Re: standard deviation

image001.gif Enter the first number, 1.
image001.gif Hit the σ+ (Sigma+) key. ( n=1 will appear in the window)
image001.gif Enter the second number, 1.
image001.gif Hit the σ+ (Sigma+) key. (n=2 will appear in the window)
image001.gif . . . . .
image001.gif Enter the last number, 7.
image001.gif Hit the σ+ (Sigma+) key. (n=7 will appear in the window)
image001.gif Hit 2nd x2 (by hitting the 2nd key you are actually selecting the x-bar written above the key.) This gives you the mean.
image001.gif Hit 2nd sqrt(x). This gives you the sample standard deviation which we will use in class.
image001.gif Make sure you turn your calculator off and on for new data sets.

Re: standard deviation

Thanks Shugga T. I was wratching my brain and could not figure how to do it on the calculator. I was starting to think I was going to have to do it by hand. You just saved me a lot of time. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

How can I find the mean absolute deviation?

Mean absolute deviation.
Let's break it down into its components.
Mean - Average
Absolute - absolute value - sign doesn't matter - if negative, make positive
Deviation - difference from the mean

Let's do an example. Population 3 7 4 2. Total 16. Mean (Average) 16/4 = 4.

3 - 4 = -1 absolute value 1
7 - 4 = 3
4 - 4 = 0
2 - 4 = -2 absolute value 2

Sum of these deviations 1 + 3 + 0 + 2 = 6
Mean (average) of these deviations is 6 / 4 = 1.5.

Good luck,

How to calculate mean

The mean is (1+5+9)/3 = 5.
The squared deviations are (1-5)^2=16, (5-5)^2=0, and (9-5)^2=16.
The sum of the squared deviations are 16+16 = 32.
Divided by one less than the number of data points, 32/(3-1) = 16.
The square root of 16 is 4. This is the sample standard deviation.

Where is s on the ti-30xa calculator

If you mean the standard deviation, there are two shifted keys on the third row marked with a lower-case Greek sigma. sigma_xn is the population standard deviation and sigma_xn-1 is the sample standard deviation.

I have 50 data points for which i need to find standard deviation on a classpad 330 , is there any quicker way to calculate than minusing the mean from every data point?

Here is one technique I used on the TI84Plus.
Create two lists list1(50) and list2(50) of equal dimension (same length)
You will have to find how to do it on ClassPad.
Fill list2 with zeros
Fill list1 with your data.
Sort the list in ascending order (if it is not sorted)
Do standard deviation calculation on list1 (or calculate the average)
The mean of the data is in a special variable (xbar)
From the command line using the list syntax calculate abs(list1-xbar) and store results in list2, overwiting the zeros.
Perform standard deviation on the new list2. You will get the mean deviation from the mean in the variable xbar.

A simple request from you. Can you please not use MINUS as a verb? By doing so you are propagating incorrect usage. There is a short and correct way to express the operation: to add.

How do I use the standard deviation function?

  1. Calculator must be in SD mode (standard deviation mode) :Press [MODE] [.]
  2. However, if [FIX] or [SCI] appears on display you must press [MODE][9] first.
  3. Data input always starts with [SHIFT][SAC], to clear the registers of old data.
  4. Type a number and press the [DATA] key, it is the [M+] key at the bottom right of keypad.
After you finish entering the data

Press [SHIFT] [9] (sigma n-1) to get sample standard deviation
Press [SHIFT][8] (sigma n] for the population standard deviation
Press [SHIFT] [7] (xbar) for the mean
Press [SHIFT] [6] (n) for the number of data entries
Press [SHIFT] [5] (capital sigma x) for the sum of values
Press [SHIFT] [4] (capital sigma x to y) for the sum of squares of the values

For additional information you might consider taking a look at the calculator manual.

If both tests are graed on a curve, who did better and why?

Jill. She scored two standard deviations above the mean, while he only scored one-and-a-half standard deviations above the mean.

Standard Deviation

Texas Instruments TI-86 Statistics How-To Information The following instructions should allow you to calculate the mean and standard deviation using a TI-86 calculator.
  1. Press STAT
  2. Select EDIT
  3. Enter data into a list: [2.32 ENTER 2.43 ENTER 2.39 ENTER, etc.] Continue until all data have been entered. (use arrows keys to go to the y value, if any)
  4. EXIT until you reach the main ("blank") screen. (If you try to calculate while you're in the data menu, it thinks you're still trying to enter data!)
  5. Press STAT
  6. Select CALC
  7. Select OneVa
  8. Select LIST, NAMES, xStat(F2), Press ENTER
  9. The calculator provides Max, Min, Mean, Standard Deviation, Sum, Sigma, etc. You will be primarily interested in the Mean and Standard Deviation (sx).
