Statistics Level 3

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.
