In this class you’ll learn the basic vocabulary and concepts you need to analyze data and think like a statistician.

I'm very grateful to SumAll for graciously hosting this class. In this class we will cover statistics from a theoretical and practical perspective. We will spend most of the time on learning statistics and the rest of the time learning to use R, a very powerful and versatile open source tool that is available for free by clicking on that link. Please come with R and RStudio loaded on your laptop. No laptop? No problem. You can follow along in class and I will send you the command lines to look over at home.
Why would you want to take a course on statistics? If you have data and you want to answer questions with that data, statistics is a very powerful tool. This is especially true for people doing business analytics and marketing.
I taught statistics to college psychology majors for years at Hunter College and also a class on data-based consulting and applied research to MS students at Baruch. I have also worked at AMEX and Pfizer running statistical analyses for their training departments. If you have two groups of friends, I can absolutely tell you if one is (statistically) significantly taller than the other.
