Information for lesson "Statistics DSST/TECEP/UExcel (Khan Academy)"
Description: Introduction to statistics. Will eventually cover all of the major topics in a first-year statistics course (not there yet!) Mathematical statistics is the study of statistics from a mathematical standpoint, using probability theory as well as other branches of mathematics such as linear algebra and analysis. The term "mathematical statistics" is closely related to the term "statistical theory" but also embraces modelling for actuarial science and non-statistical probability theory, particularly in Scandinavia. Statistics deals with gaining information from data. In practice, data often contain some randomness or uncertainty. Statistics handles such data using methods of probability theory.
