Split into five modules, this is a beginner’s course covering the fundamentals of statistics. Start with mean, mode, and median. Then learn about standard deviation using examples from basketball. Learn about probability with dice. Learn what it means to group data by categorical variables, and how you can transform your data into appropriate graphs and charts.

In the final module, using an open dataset, learn whether good looking professors indeed get better teaching evalutions.
