Über diesen Kurs

NOTE: This course has been divided into two courses: Descriptive and Inferential Statistics. If you are new to statistics, we recommend taking these courses instead.

We live in a time of unprecedented access to information...data. Whether researching the best school, job, or relationship, the Internet has thrown open the doors to vast pools of data. Statistics are simply objective and systematic methods for describing and interpreting information so that you may make the most informed decisions about life.

It sounds strange to say, but math is not the focus of this class. To do well, however, it is necessary to have a basic understanding of proportions (fractions, decimals, and percentages), negative numbers, basic algebra (solving equations), and exponents and square roots.
