Math Matters

Homework for Data Analysis for Managers week 1 has already taken me about 12 hours and I'm only three quarters (or is that interquartile?) Done. I need to have a strong foundation in these first chapters or I know I will be in lala land by the time class starts.

The data is hugely practical and it is like learning a new language. Slow and steady is my approach. Also many Altoids to keep me from exploding. Not sure why that works. If the entire course were just based on these two chapters I would be happy. Imagine, this is just the Masters level Statistics course. Next I have to take the Doctoral level one. Breath, Altoid, breath.
