Lesson Summary:

In this lesson on Hypothesis Testing, Part 1 of 2, we learn about testing the significance level of a claim related to the average body temperature of humans. The lesson covers the null hypothesis associated with equality and the alternative hypothesis. The central limit theorem and sampling distribution are also discussed. By assuming the 98.6 degrees, the video demonstrates how to test if the results are significant, and we learn that the standard deviation is approximately 0.13.
