Researchers typically express the confidence in their data in terms of p-value: the probability that a perceived result is actually the result of random value of p (for “probability”) is a way of measuring the extent to which a data set provides evidence against a so-called null hypothesis. By convention, a p-value below is considered a meaningful Cited by:
The science checklist applied: Mathematics: Two plus two equals four may not be rocket science, but is it science?Math is frequently associated with science and is certainly relied upon by scientists — the pages of any modern biology, chemistry, physics, geology, or psychology journal are peppered with calculations, statistics, graphs, and mathematical models — but how much .
