Module 0: Welcome to Stat 140!

How to use this site/document/thing

These notes are divided into different sections:

  • The main part is about course content. This includes things like overviews of each module, notes to supplement textbook readings, and transcripts of any videos I post. Some transcripts also have side notes that you may find helpful, with more information (or bad jokes).
  • The Appendices are for stuff that isn’t specifically the course content. The syllabus has lots of information, general and specific, about the course. The resources section has handy links to supplementary help, progress tracking worksheets, and more.

This document isn’t designed to be read through in order – hence all the hyperlinks. Use the sidebar to navigate to what you need (you can also bookmark specific locations in your browser), and feel free to ask (or start a discussion thread!) if you can’t find something. Happy reading!
