In this session, you will learn the following:
Statistics is a problem-solving process with four components.
Data consist of measurements of a particular variable.
There are two types of variables -- quantitative and qualitative.
There are many sources of variation in data, including random error and bias.
Throughout the session you will be prompted to view short video segments.
