Welcome to my course in Statistics!
After finishing this course you will master the next subjects:
* Understanding completely how SPSS works
* Performing descriptive statistics with SPSS
* Performing a full range of hypothesis tests within SPSS (if some tests are not yet included and you need to do them, just ask me, I will add them for you, but I guess all the ones you need are included)
* How to interpret your results easy style (so everyone can understand it easily)
* How to interpret your results APA style. (which is necessary to document your finding, for example for a bachelor or master thesis.
* Bonus: Some videos about descriptive statistics, distribution and hypothesis testing by hand. But after two months I will delete those. Better versions and much more exercises from those topics are available in my other courses tailored to those subjects.
Terminology will be as easy as possible. I'm a teacher and my maingoal is to make statistics easy :).
Exercises are included (they are in the videos, in the beginning you see the exercises, then you have to stop the video, make them, and then see the answers with explanation).
Please if you want to have specific questions ask them to me! I will be more motivated to make videos answering your questions than just randomly ;) Also if you already want some SPSS explanation… I want to make all my video’s and it doesn’t matter for me in which order ;). This also counts for exercises you want to be added to this course ;)
Last but not least, Wish you guys good luck and fun while going through my course :)
A little exercise you have to do yourself. At the end I show you how to draw the graph of a Cumulative Distribution Function (CDF).
What is an Uniform Distribution? How does it work?
Nice to get a basic understanding about how distribution functions work. Has a nice bridge to the normal distribution function which is commonly used and next ;).
Basic Calculations how they can be in your exam.
Now do it yourself! Test if you can do it ;)
The Normal Distribution is the most common distribution. But it is quiet difficult distribution to understand at once. I will teach you first the 'Standardized' Normal Distribution. A special kind of normal distribution with average 0 and standard deviation 1. After mastering the Standardized Normal Distribution, it will be much easier to understand the Normally used 'Normal Distribution'.Which I will teach to you afterwards ofcourse :)
A little exercise for you :)
First, If you are doing this course for yourself, or for more understanding of statistics, please skip the tables part, and skip forward to the part where I explain how to find those same values with Excel. Much easier :) :)
In almost all university studies, students have to use Z tables to calculate probabilities. So in that case, 'Watch' on!
Unfortunately there are three different kind of tables used. In some studies you can use all three, but in other ones just one or two.
I will explain how the three different tables work and how you can easily transform the values from one table into the other table.
Solve problems like P(-2<Z<1)
In this lecture I 'finally' describe to you the Normal Distribution.
how to transform values into Z values? So you can find the probabilities in the Z tables?
What is the possibility that the temperature tomorrow will fall in between 6 and 9 degrees?
Some questions to make. Pause the video after seeing the questions. The Questions will appear one by one on the screen, so you can check the answers directly without seeing the result of the upcoming questions.
Fun, interesting, social.
That's the reason I teach.
While studying my master degree (at Tilburg University), I was already teaching other students. Not only individuals but I was also giving tutorships to small classes.
After my study I went backpacking in Australia and afterwards I started a traineeship at one of the biggest Insurance companies (Achmea). Next to that work I was always teaching just because I love it. In the evening hours I went to the teaching academy to learn more and more about teaching and afterwards I decided to startup my own business specialized in Math and Statistics.
Now after years of experience of trial and error, I experience that the way I explain statistics to my students became super efficient. Now my next step in my carreer is to not explain it to students studying in the Netherlands but to students all over the world.
What's a better way to that than on Udemy?
