Probability and statistics are the language in which engineers, scientists, economists, and other professionals speak. But speaking the language of mathematics doesn’t always come easy to everyone. Whether you’re just starting out or looking to improve your skills, these free math courses provide an introduction to probability and statistics that will set you on the path to understanding real-world problems in business, technology, medicine, science, sports, law, finance, and more.

What you’ll learn in Become a Probability & Statistics Master

1. Bar graphs, pie charts, venn diagrams, histograms, and dot plots are examples of data visualization techniques.
2. Data analysis, such as mean, median, and mode, as well as range and IQR and box-and-whisker plots
3. Normal and z-score distributions, as well as data distributions such as mean, variance, and standard deviation
4. Union vs. intersection, independent and dependent events, and Bayes’ theorem are some of the topics covered in probability.
5. Binomial, Bernoulli, Poisson, and geometric random variables are all discrete random variables.
6. Types of studies, bias, and sampling distribution of the sample mean or sample proportion, as well as confidence intervals, are all topics covered by sampling.
7. Inferential statistics, significance levels, type I and II errors, test statistics, and p-values are all included in hypothesis testing.
8. Scatterplots, correlation coefficients, residuals, coefficients of determination, RMSE, and chi-square are all part of the regression process.

Requirements

• You should be able to perform basic arithmetic operations on whole numbers (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division).
• Basic algebraic operations and equation solving should be second nature to you.
• To solve these probability and statistics problems, you’ll only need basic arithmetic and algebra, so if you already have that foundation, you’ll be fine.

Description

HOW DO YOU BECOME A RISK?
This 163-lesson course includes video and text explanations of everything from Probability and Statistics, as well as 45 quizzes (with solutions!) and an additional 8 workbooks with additional practice problems to help you test your understanding.

AND THIS IS WHAT YOU WILL FIND INSIDE EACH SECTION:
Watch as I solve problems for every single math issue you’ll face in class. I explain the problem setup and why I set it up that way, the steps I take and why I take them, how to work through the yucky, fuzzy middle parts, and how to simplify the answer once you get it.

Quizzes: When you think you’ve got a good handle on a topic in a course, you can put your knowledge to the test by taking one of the quizzes; if you pass, great; if you don’t, you can go back over the videos and notes or ask for help in the Q&A section.

Who this course is for:

• Current probability and statistics students, or students about to start probability and statistics who are looking to get ahead
• Homeschool parents looking for extra support with probability and statistics
• Anyone who wants to study math for fun after being away from school for a while
