Statistics STAT301

This course is a very useful course at Level Three. You will gain a completely different view of the statistics you hear in the media and will be well informed not just for further study but life in general. A good grounding in statistics is rapidly becoming one of the most sought after skills in many career options and this course prepares you for that. 

You will learn to use your own sense of curiosity to answer questions of data, learn to use your writing skills to convince others of your results and then learn how to use statistics to critically evaluate the statistics you see in everyday life.
