A Guitar Hero Based Project in Mathematical Statistics

Tuesday, May 25th, 20102:30 pm – 3:00 pm ET

Presented by: Ivan Ramler, St. Lawrence University


This webinar will discuss an undergraduate Mathematical Statistics course project based on the popular video game Guitar Hero. The project included:

  1. Developing an estimator to address the research objective "Are notes missed at random?"
  2. Learning bootstrapping techniques and R programming skills to conduct hypothesis tests and
  3. Evaluating the quality of the estimator(s) under certain sets of scenarios.
