A very good second course on elementary statistics. It requires us to finish 'descriptive statistics' before starting it and is a much lengthier course. However, the teaching style is very nice with emphasis on "why?" rather than simply calculating variables without understanding the concepts. The lecturers go to great lengths to help us visualize the data as well (I've come to believe that any course from Katie Kormanik must be easy to understand)!

This is an excellent course for intermediate statistics. This course builds upon the Descriptive statistics course. The method of teaching focuses on understanding and applying various concepts rather than just plugging values in formulas.
