A New School Year is Coming...

With the new school year rapidly approaching (again), I am thinking that it might be a good time to (once again) (try to) begin a cohesive series of posts to discuss a particular unit.  I have been finding that a lot of my readers actually arrive on my site through various searches of statistical functions and concepts.  I have previously introduced the concepts of mean, median, and mode, and provided a brief discussion about these measures of central tendency, and the situations in which you would use each function.  But I think it might be useful to several of my visitors to provide more than just these brief introductions.

Admittedly, I do not have a statistics background.  I am much stronger in the various mathematics concepts that I have already covered on my site (e.g. algebra and calculus), and I only ever studied basic stats and probability in university.  However, if you consider that I will be explaining these functions essentially as I am learning them, hopefully my explanations will be at the perfect level for others who are just learning them as well.  It will be like a study group where we learn together, and can discuss ideas back and forth so that everyone can benefit.  I welcome, appreciate, and encourage feedback on all of my posts, and I can say that I hope to get even more feedback about the coming posts.  I might also add that I am open to considering guest posts by other math writers, maybe from those who know the subject of statistics better than I do!  If anyone is interested, please don't hesitate to contact me to discuss.

My posts will start shortly, as I find available time to put them together.  These may take more time to prepare than I usually require, so please have patience, and come back soon.  Hopefully, I'll be able to put together a nice package to get Statistics Explained for you!
