The new Against All Odds is intended as a
one-year introduction to statistics. Made up of vivid real-world
examples, our goal is to present statistics in the context of its
contemporary use. Host Dr. Pardis Sabeti guides viewers through the wide
range of statistical applications used by scientists, business owners,
and even Shakespeare scholars, in their work and daily lives.
Starting with descriptive statistics, the series continues through
probability and inference. Each unit builds on preceding ones to expand
students' statistical knowledge and solidify their understanding of how
the concepts fit together. Statistical case studies range from finding
patterns in lightning strikes, to linking DDT to the decline of
peregrine falcons, to analyzing salaries to lobby for comparable pay for
men and women. After watching the videos, viewers can dig deeper on the
coordinated website, which features additional content coverage, as
well as interactive tools to explore and exercises and review questions
to work through.
Against All Odds takes you inside statistics!
