Our Statistics course provides comprehensive instruction that focuses on gathering, presenting, and evaluating data. Corporations, businesses, and other institutions collect data through surveys and questionnaires, and rely on Statistics to make accurate statements about their findings. Learn why Organizing Data in Tables is a helpful strategy to better recognize patterns and relationships between variables. Discover basic statistical methods in our topics of Creating Box Plots and Interpreting and Representing Data. Statistics explores Measures of Central Tendency, Variance and Standard Deviation to summarize general trends and behavior in data sets, and can even be used to make predictions. Explore Permutations and other Probability Concepts, which investigate the number of possible outcomes to a certain event. Whether seeking to collect and analyze data, or predicting likely outcomes to future events, you will become proficient in the applications, methods and equations presented in our Statistics course.
