Love ’em or hate ’em, statistics are going to appear in a journal article at some point, and so I felt it would behoove me to learn something about how the numbers are calculated and what relationships they depict.
This page is a collection of resources for others who would be similarly hooved. 🙂
Nature.com’s page of “Statistics for biologists”: http://www.nature.com/collections/qghhqm#close
Online course “Introduction to Statistics: Descriptive Statistics” at edX: https://www.edx.org/course/introduction-statistics-descriptive-uc-berkeleyx-stat2-1x#.VPki6Y6f67Q
The picture above is a snapshot of notes from this class. Professor Ani Adhikari, a senior lecturer in Statistics at UC Berkeley, is an excellent teacher. This is an archived class, but if you don’t need peer pressure or grades for motivation, it might be for you. I found the bite-size chunks easy to handle, and actually passed the course when it was given.
In progress — more to come.
