Friday, February 15, 2013 - its all about the math, y'all

I'm sure many of you already know about, but if not, it is an online repository of learning modules on just about any topic you can imagine, from math, to science and economics, and more.

I want to focus your attention on a particular set of modules at the Khan Academy on probability and statistics (click here). Kal (the founder of the site, and the author of this particular series of modules) is a brilliant guy, and really good at breaking down statistics to social worker speed. It was a great supplement to the standard coursework on quantitative methods in my program.

Topics include:

  • Independent and dependent events
  • Probability and combinatorics
  • Random variables and probability distributions
  • Descriptive statistics
  • Regression
  • Inferential statistics
Need I say more? Get to clickin', y'all. ;-)
