Zen and the Art of Statistics

Date: Saturday, December 13th, 2008 Time: 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Speaker: Greg Sholdt

What is the true meaning of the mean? During this unique and fun workshop designed for those who don't like numbers, the presenter will guide participants in an exploration of statistical concepts and reasoning. The primary goal is to deepen participants' understanding of statistics and demonstrate techniques for self-study. During the workshop, participants will solve quantitative riddles that are loosely modeled after Zen koans and carefully designed to lead participants to higher levels of quantitative clarity.

The presentation will be followed by a bonenkai, all are welcome to join!
