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 and Introduction to Biostatistics for Public Health courses, 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 analysis.
This is the first math course that I’ve taken in college that I actually enjoy. The homeworks are challenging, but not impossible because we have all the resources. When I’ve emailed Emily she responded very quickly and answered my question in a way that I could understand. I can tell that she enjoys her work and is interested in her students learning the material.– Introduction to Biostatistics for Public Health Online Student
