Sneak Peek

 

An Introduction or refresher of Statistics with this online course

This course covers the subject of statistics in a broad way, but not as deeply as longer courses would. In this way it is going to give you a broad foundation, so that you can appreciate the scope and nature of statistics, without getting overly complicated. You don’t need to have been particularly good at mathematics at school in order to succeed in this course. This is not a mathematically complex course. It is very much designed as a “foundation”, to teach you the minimum needed to appreciate and work with statistical data.
