Course tutor: Michelle Everson

Please note this course runs until 26th April 2013.

This course is the equivalent of a semester course in introductory statistics. Credit is available via the American Council on education's Credit Recommendation Service (see below). The course features the use of resampling and simulation techniques (picking numbers from a hat, throwing dice, etc.) that make probabilistic statistics more transparent and understandable. The goal is real understanding, not cookbook learning, and even the most anxious novice (as well as the expert!) will benefit. It was developed by Peter Bruce, President of the Institute for Statistics Education at; he has published a number of papers in the area of resampling and is the co-author of Data Mining for Business Intelligence (Wiley, 2010). The senior instructor for the course is Michelle Everson, who teaches statistics at the University of Minnesota and is the recipient of the College of Education and Human Development’s 2009 Distinguished Teaching Award and the American Statistical Association's 2011 Waller Education Award.
