Data can be deceiving. Learn to use math to discern truth from fiction.
Statistics starts from data and then asks what was used to generate it. Learning the building blocks — median, mode, range, variance, and standard deviation — will help you analyze graphs, determine statistical significance, and make informed decisions.
By the end of this course, you'll be able to mathematically quantify predictions, use statistical tools to conduct experiments, and discern the truth in a set of data.
You'll need an understanding of algebra and some familiarity with probability.
