A unified approach to testing hypotheses about parameters of a normal population
AuthorsNikolai Kolev, Delhi Paiva
AbstractWe discuss our practice related to classical hypothesis testing about unknown parameters of a normal population offered to undergraduates in the University of São Paulo. We consider the tests for the population mean and variance when the sample size is "large" and "small" as well as the well-known tests comparing the means and variances for independent samples. We suggest an algorithmic approach, which our students appreciate.
