I was not at all wanting to take this class, but just this first video and your enthusiasm made me super excited about statistics. I loved your examples too, by the way.– Social Statistics Online Student
Throughout my Social Statistics course, I teach students how to overcome math anxiety and help them develop strengths in statistical analysis.
Many students begin this course doubtful of their ability to succeed in math. This course is designed to introduce new ways of thinking about math that are accessible to all kinds of learners. First, we build up our math ability beliefs while mastering the basics of probability and descriptive statistics. Over the course of the semester, we strengthen our intermediate analytic skills through examples grounded in applied sociological analysis.
