It is important to know how to understand statistics so that we can make the proper judgments when a person presents us with an argument backed by data. Data are numbers with a context. We must always keep the meaning of our data in mind.
Statistics is used in almost every field of research. We will learn about subjects in modern statistics and some applications of statistics. We will also lay out some of the background mathematical concepts required to begin studying statistics.
