Things My Wife and I Talk About: Margin of Error

Beautiful Wife: Shawn, on BabyCenter.com, our baby name poll has:

  • 6 votes for “Coney Atoll”
  • 5 votes for “Viper McStab”
  • 8 votes for “Rambo Brite”
  • 9 votes for “Dinosaurus Rex”

Shawn: So, the error on those are something like ± 20% (I was being nice, 95% confidence @ 1/sqrt(n))

BWife: … What?

Shawn: Well, you’re only getting a sample of the total BabyCenter.com community, so like, there’s an error because those 28 people only sort of know what the whole group might actually think about our names.

BWife: So you don’t want to talk about this then.

Shawn: … I thought I was helping.

Also from great moments in Cornally-marriage history, the papoose lesson is happening this week in my calculus course.

    Excellent goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you’re just too great. I really like what you have acquired here, really like what you are saying and the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you still care for to keep it sensible. I can not wait to read far more from you. This is actually a tremendous web site.

    haha! I’ve definitely had a conversation like this with my wife before — but not on the same topic (although it might pop up in the future). I haven’t turned many of those conversations into lesson yet… but excellent idea. I’ll have to start keeping track.
