Introduction to Statistics
Do you need an introduction to statistics or maybe just a refresher? Do you want to improve your understanding of data and use it to make decisions? This is the course for you!
With easy-to-understand examples combined with real-world applications, this course provides you with the skills and knowledge you need to start analyzing data. You’ll explore how to use data and apply statistics to real-life problems and situations.
We’ll discuss data and data collection practices. You’ll learn to summarize and describe data with charts, numbers, and graphs. You’ll even calculate and interpret probabilities and then see how they apply to decision making when you’re faced with uncertainty.
You’ll learn ways to visualize and measure relationships in data, and we’ll also use data to make forecasts and predictions. You’ll grasp the basics of statistical inference and discover what it means for a result to be statistically significant. Throughout the course, we’ll use real data and a variety of examples drawn from business and industry, health care and medicine, sports, education, politics, news events, and the social sciences.
Don’t worry if detailed calculations are not your thing! We’ll use a variety of free online resources to aid with calculations. By the end, you’ll be able to successfully apply and interpret basic statistical procedures.
