Welcome to A Slacker’s Guide To Basic and Intermediate Statistics. This course is an introduction to core statistical concepts, framed with a down-to-earth approach that makes statistics accessible to students of all backgrounds. With the Slacker’s Guide series, we aim to demystify subject material and encourage students to think of how the concepts they learn can be applied to real-life situations. We avoid over-complicated (and almost always unnecessary) traditional explanations, in favor of practical, memorable, and often irreverent presentations of statistical concepts. Learning should be something you want to do, not something you force yourself to get through. We believe we have created a lecture series that is both informative and easy to listen. Let us help you on the next step in your statistical journey.
We’re not actually going to be slacking off here. We just thought it was a cool nickname!
P.S. This course is a very-much a living organism and we are ready and willing to add material to meet the needs of our students. Send us questions and we will do our best to address them!
