Stats 101: Where to stat?

See what I did there?

If you’re anything like me, you’re finding your way backwards into stats after spending a lifetime thinking that all there was to the field was mean, median, mode, sometimes cumulative frequency, and those are things you left behind in high school.

Newsflash: not only is stats underlying every quantitative prediction you churn out, a proper understanding of the math is vital if you want to do good science.

Rather than pretend I know everything, I’m once again going to link to some sources with external validity.

Check out this course outline and its accompanying gitrepo, compiled by Dr. Çetinkaya-Rundel at the Duke University. Please reference the original if you use it!stat
