# Course Topics

## Statistics

These lessons cover the basics of deriving insight from data, whether in raw form or summarized in a frequency table. Two lessons cover relationships among variables, with attention to correlation and causation.

The symmetrical "Bell Curve" normal distribution requires clarity about interval reasoning.

The Central Limit Theorem extends normal distributions to samples of asymmetrically distributed data. Inference helps us to relate samples back to populations of interest.
