Talk:Squared deviations from the mean
|WikiProject Statistics||(Rated Start-class, Mid-importance)|
As an end user of stats (analytical chemist), I've been looking around the statistical sections of Wikipedia. It's tough going.
I agree with some commentators of other statistical sections that people like myself need a more gentle introduction. For example a simple explanation of why the most likely value for a series of repeated measurements is the one for which the sum of the squared deviations is a minimum.
