Who Created the T Test and What Does It Have to Do with a Famous Irish Brewery?

This is the first of a new ongoing series, featured on the JMP website, called "Well, What Do You Know?" Every month or so, we'll add a new, interesting story about the field of statistics.

At the turn of the 20th century, William Sealy Gosset worked for the Guinness Brewing Company in Dublin, Ireland. As a graduate of Oxford with a combined degree in chemistry and mathematics, he was challenged to apply new scientific methods to the business. Gosset used Poisson's distribution to perfect the measurement of yeast cells, which led to a formulating a more consistent beverage. He also conducted agricultural studies that helped improve barley crop yields.

JMP Tip: Using the Red and Blue Triangles

You will encounter two types of triangles in JMP's interface. Both are clickable.

Red triangles are "hot spots" that you click on to reveal a menu. The menu is contextual, so it only shows relevant commands. This gives you quick access to the exact functions you need at a particular time.

Blue triangles are disclosure icons that, when clicked, alternately open and close sections of a report. This allows you to easily hide sections so that you can display only the parts that are important to you.
