Confusing Statistics: An online taster class from Tufts University Wed 15 Sept


Confusing Statistics 5:00pm - 6:00pm EDT, Wednesday, September 15 (10pm-11pm BST)


Christoph Borgers, Professor of Mathematics

In this class, we will think about several simple questions about probabilities and statistics which have surprising, counter-intuitive answers. The unifying theme is an 18th century discovery called Bayes’ Theorem, which lies at the foundation of the modern approach to understanding and interpreting scientific data.
