Statistics Through Applications
Course Date: Jan 8 - Feb 6, 2004


Aim of the course is to provide an easy introduction to statistics and
statistical terminology through a series of practical applications. Once
you've completed this four-week on-line interactive course you'll be able to
summarize data, interpret reports and newspaper accounts that use statistics
and probability, and review plans for surveys and experiments.

Who Should Take This Course: Anyone who encounters statistics in their
work. This first course in statistics requires no prior training in the
subject. The only mathematics you need is arithmetic. Software is
provided.

Organisation of the Course - The course takes place over the Internet at
statistics.com. Course participants will be given access to a private
bulletin board, on which they will receive course materials. The board will
also serve as a forum for discussion of ideas and problem solving.
Resampling Stats software is provided for the duration of the course and you
will be given step-by-step instructions in its use.

The course is scheduled to take place over four weeks. At the beginning of
each week, participants receive the relevant material, in addition to
answers to exercises from the previous session. During the week,
participants are expected to go over the course materials and work through
exercises. Discussion among participants is encouraged. The course leader
will provide answers and comments on set weekdays.
To enroll - You may register for this course by going to our payment site
and entering your credit card information.

Apart from anything else, they don't say how much the course costs --
and I always work on the assumption that if people won't tell me the
price, then I can't afford to buy it!
