Student's t-distribution gets its name because of an anonymous publishing by Gosset back in the 1900's. Today this distribution is widely used by many people in many disciplines. The t-distribution is bell-shaped and symmetric around 0, similar to the standard normal distribution. However, the t-distribution's shape is determined by its degrees of freedom. Small degrees of freedom result in heavy tails and a low peak. As the degrees of freedom increase, the shape approaches the normal.
To help represent the changing shape of the t-distribution three degrees of freedom were chosen, 1, 2, and 200, and are embroidered in shades of green. On the back of the plushie is a t and a legend for the three curves, as shown in the last image.
This listing is for one anatomically correct* t-distribution plushie. The plushie is made from pre-washed baby blue flannel. All features are hand embroidered. The plushie is gently stuffed with poly-fil.
*The open-source program R was used to create the pattern.
Size: Approximately 10" long and 7" tall
