• Statistics is an alive, applicable to our world, significant area of study.   
    It is central to the scientific method. 
    It will be valuable to all, even if you insist it wont!
    That is why I teach it.

     

    STATISTICS =

    practicing the art & science

    of making educated decisions 

    when faced with uncertainty

     

     
    We will work very hard in Statistics.  We will stretch and grow each class meeting. 
    Expect lots of material to be covered daily.  Understand that we will have homework nearly every day. 
    Start it early!   
    (11pm the eve before due date is not early)
     
    If you hope this class is a lot of fun, then it will be ALOT of work. 
    If, however, you plan on this class being a lot of work, then it will turn out to be a ton of fun!
     
    I have high expectations for this genuinely valuable course of study.  This course is a rigorous excursion, even for the excellent students we have at Oak Park.  It is for those who genuinely desire to learn how to learn...those folk who enjoy mental stimulation and intellectual growth...people who want to stretch their minds and grow, rather than merely point chase to earn a grade and please their parents.
    If you do, you will learn how to make wise choices when faced with uncertainty.

    strong man
     
    HW is not as heavy as this sphere. 
    But the projects and AP Exam prep, ARE!
     
     
    We are drowning in information,
    Yet we are starving for truth.
     
     
    Do It
    Don't just try.  Find a way to get it Done. 
    And Done Well.
     
     
     

    WE DO NOT CHOOSE TO GO TO THE MOON BECAUSE IT IS EASY,

    WE GO TO THE MOON BECAUSE IT IS HARD.

    (JOHN F KENNEDY)

     

     All who have accomplished Great things

    have had Great aim,

    have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high,

    one which sometimes

    seemed impossible.

    (Orison Swett Marden)

    Respect.  Students should understand that I choose to teach because I want to see you succeed. I want you to learn what is required for success in our modern society. I will work hard to help you learn. I have chosen to teach, because it is a noble profession..."What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains.  And is immortal." Albert Pine 

    I have chosen to teach Statistics & Data Science because this branch of mathematics is incredibly connected to nearly everything!

    Students should also value the mathematical ideas of other students by listening to them during class discussions.  Show respect by listening to and pondering the ideas of classmates.  In addition, Be Kind to your classmates.  Seek to understand who they are and where they are coming from.  Be civil.  Be courteous.  Civility is a lost art in our society.  I am confident you want the same, to be valued and treated with respect.
