I share An Introduction to Statistics because as a teacher with limited resources and time, I found myself in a predicament and there might be other teachers who find themselves in a similar predicament.
I had a textbook that only contained one chapter of statistics and a curriculum that expected a semesters worth. What to do? Hunt online for worksheets? Photocopy textbooks I owned?
I find it is easier to write what you envisioned than to hunt for hours for something compatible, because in the end, your book would tie it all together for easy future reference.
Here you have today my very own collection of resources I obtained on my hunt to create the necessary resources I needed to teach the course I envisioned it to be.
The following lessons are presented:
Lesson 1 Levels of Data Measurement
