Using the Course
We've designed this course so that it's easy to navigate for students who are struggling with statistics concepts. Check out the two most popular options to decide which best fits your needs:
- Start at the beginning with descriptive and inferential statistics, and advance through the chapters and lessons in order until you reach the last lesson on the coefficient of determination. Lessons follow a natural progression, making this option simple to follow along.
- Identify statistics topics you find most difficult, and skip the material you already know. If you only need to study stratified random samples, you can go straight to that chapter. Though some lessons might refer to topics in previous lessons, each one is designed to stand alone to make sure you get all of the info you need to understand a topic.
