Probably, but undergrad classes in Statistics are not available to everyone.

Did you notice any specific weak areas?




I think this is aimed at an audience outside the academic system, and I like the focus on active involvement with data. I think there could be an activist underpinning here - Paulo Freire style data literacy. (http://www.infed.org/thinkers/et-freir.htm)

Having said that, my Maths teacher self wants to do some work on the glossary. In the spirit of 'code talks' I'll post some definitions up and link them to the issue tracker and see what happens...

If you have internet connection you can learn Statistics, there is a lot of good resources. For example:

https://www.coursera.org/course/stats1 (maybe not undergrad level, but good place to start)

http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/mathematics/18-05-introduction-to...


Speaking of Coursera, Data Analysis[1] starts January - "applied statistics course focusing on data analysis".
