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.
A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!
How does it work? Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.
Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.
Can we predict the next world-record time in the mile run? How can we forecast CO2 levels in the atmosphere? In Lesson 6, we'll go beyond describing and measuring association between variables. You'll use linear regression to find an equation that models the data. Then you'll use the equation to make predictions.

Thank you for teaching this course on statistics. Your lessons were easy to follow and understand. I have learned what I expected to learn from this course and would definitely recommend you to others who would like to either learn or improve their comprehension of statistics.
The teaching style of the instructor is very practical and elegant...All the examples are real, not just a bunch of tables or numbers. It was a delight to quickly read the lessons and not have questions afterwards.
I was taking this class to prep for a Healthcare Stats class. I thought it would be a good introduction and it provided me with much of the terminology and game plan. Thank you for your hard work.
The instructor was great - very responsive and helpful. The course was designed well. I learned a lot and the quizzes prepared me well for the final exam.
I think the course is really good and it is the first time in my life that I was able to understand a standard deviation.
I enjoyed this class very much and the interaction with other classmates. I wish there was an online advanced statistics course to continue.
Thanks for a very good learning experience. I would never have imagined I could understand statistics, and yet you made it very easy. I appreciate all the resources available in case I need to revisit and refresh my memory in the future.
Thank you, Ben! Your course was enjoyable. The information will be very helpful for my job..Thanks also for your questions and comments in the discussion areas, which were very helpful.
Thank you for this interesting, useful and beneficial course.
