Description

Statistics is a powerful tool we can use to help us understand the world. This course is for those who are interested in learning about simple, one variable statistics using Microsoft Excel 2016. Each lesson is an HD video with questions for you to answer as you watch the videos. This course assumes you already have Excel 2016 installed on your computer. This course is designed for beginners in statistics, and the examples are relatively simple, involving only a few values. The emphasis is on using Excel to grow your understanding.  You don't need separate data files to complete this course or math skills. Let's get learning!

Who is the target audience?

My principal interests lie in the automation of scientific instrumentation and analysis of collected data, along with the integration of disparate systems.  Recently developed some expertise in customising a major CRM deployment and developed a bunch of custom database queries to derive critical management information and user dashboards.
Qualified in Computer Studies, Electronic Engineering and Chemistry, I work in the support of significant scientific computer applications.  I have lectured in Computer Studies at a community college in the United Kingdom.
