Pre-Stats Crash Course for Grad Students
The Library's Pre-Stats Crash Course for grad students is a series of free workshops to get you ready for graduate-level stats next semester.
Let us put you at ease. The crash course is helpful. And free.
Did you take stats as an undergrad? Great! Let’s refresh your memory and get you ready to correlate that causation again.
Never taken stats? WONDERFUL. Let’s get you ready for your first statistics course.
Want to know a secret? Statistics IS NOT MATH. Shhh. Don’t tell anyone. Statistics is nothing more than a way of understanding data.
Our series of three 90-minute sessions will take you through everything you need to start your journey UNDERSTANDING DATA (aka statistics).
Each session starts promptly at 5:00 pm via Zoom (UBalt Zoom Account Needed)
Introduction to Statistics, Frequency Distributions, and Central Tendency
Basics of Variability & Probability and Sampling
Distribution of Sample Means & Hypothesis Testing
NO RSVP IS NECESSARY. Just show up. If you can’t make the live sessions, each session has recordings and narrated slides available.
For further information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Pre-Stats Crash Course is brought to you by the fine folks in the Math & Statistics Center, which, by the way, is where you will go for help when you take that stats course.
