Throughout the last six weeks, you have learned to critically evaluate data and compute several statistical analyses. Think back to the first week of the course when you began this journey into the world of data analysis and presentation.
How have your beliefs and attitudes changed? You may find that you now think differently about statistics you read or hear about in the news and advertisements. You may have a better understanding of research articles you read in your coursework. Hopefully, you have become a more critical consumer of information. Take some time to reflect on how you have grown and learned this term, and plan how you will incorporate your new knowledge into your everyday life.
By Day 3
Post a response to the following:
- Reflecting on what you have learned over the past six weeks, explain how your perception of statistics has changed.

Be sure to fully explain your rationale for each of your answers, and support your ideas with evidence from the text and Learning Resources.
