Yours truly gives a PhD course in statistics for students in education and sports this semester. And between teaching them all about Chebyshev’s Theorem, Beta Distributions, Moment-Generating Functions and the Neyman-Pearson Lemma, I try to remind them that statistics can actually also be fun …



  1. Marr should apply his knowledge of stats to the issue Vaccines and public health.


  3. Remind me again, why do economists assume we are rational? I think that video should knock most of those theories on their head.
