This presentation uses pregnancy tests as an example to explain statistical tests of hypotheses. It explains what the sampling distribution is and why having a larger sample size results in statistically significant results even when the hypothesised value is close to the mean of the sampling distribution.

It finalises explaining what statistical significance is not.
