Statistics may sound like a dry topic, but developing data analysis skills will unlock fascinating worlds! In this 10lesson course from statistics teacher Zac Rappell, start by understanding group data and central tendencies (mean, median, and mode), then explore measures of spread (range, IQR, and standard deviation). Learn how to create stem and leaf and box and whisker plots, and practice comparing data sets to identify new relationships. Finish with a fun final project analyzing the Oscars!
