Course Statement: Statistics are nothing to be afraid of. Course Description: The aim of this course is to introduce you to the field of statistics in the behavioral and social sciences. By the end of this course, you will know how to organize and summarize data, using tools known as descriptive statistics . In any domain of science, a research study involves the collection of observations from a population; the organization and description of those observations is a first step in analyzing and interpreting the collected data. The methods of descriptive statistics make possible the initial analysis that will later prove necessary for researchers to draw reliable conclusions from the data. Knowledge of this methodology and its subsequent applications is essential to all forms of behavioral, medical, or other scientific research.
