Basic Statistical Methods in Education

What is Statistics? Basic statistical principles are actually quite simple and can enhance anyone's critical thinking skills.

Without even realizing it, you have probably made statistical statements in your everyday conversation. Statements like "You are more likely to pass the exam if you study" or "I sleep for about 6 hours per night on average". Opinion polls and television ratings systems represent other uses of inferential statistics.

Because of the increasing use of statistics in so many areas of our lives, it is important to understand and practice statistical thinking. This knowledge is valuable even if you do not use statistical methods directly.
