Abstract

This purpose of this project was to create a set of reference material for an introductory level statistics course. The focus was on the Neyman-Pearson approach to hypothesis testing. A brief historical development of the Neyman-Pearson approach is followed by mathematical proofs of each of the hypothesis tests covered in the reference material. The reference material includes the basic hypothesis tests taught in an introductory statistics course, the accompanying distributions, and prerequisite information.
