statistical method for making simultaneous comparisons between two or more means; a statistical method that yields values that can be tested to determine whether a significant relation exists between variables analysis of variance , ANOVA
mathematics branch dealing with limits, differentiation and integration of functions of variables calculus
statistic representing how closely two variables co-vary; it can vary from -1 (perfect negative correlation) through 0 (no correlation) to +1 (perfect positive correlation) coefficient of correlation , correlation , correlation coefficient
experiment designed to control for variables affecting the results of another experiment control experiment
either of two correlated variables correlate , correlative
statistics, simultaneous change in value of two random variables in correlation
