What Is The Correct Way To Learn Statistics?

What Is The Correct Way To Learn Statistics

You won’t have much contact with statistics in your school and college life. You can clear both these levels easily even if you have a core understanding of mathematics. Most of the times students that are weak at mathematics come to us and ask if I can pay someone to do my course, they mean statistics course of course and we offer them our help. However, this does not remain the same for university life.

When you reach university life, no such help comes to your rescue. You have to get deeper into data science, statistics and if you choose some related fields, the demands of statistics get extremely high. You have to learn everything from core to closing, only then you can earn high in your major subject. Otherwise, you will have to suffer and the degree will become overpowering to you.

If you are planning to pursue a degree, where the need to study statistics is high, begin today. The limited knowledge of statistics you have today, won’t help you then. Therefore, it is the right time to start learning about statistics as much as you can.

Learning Statistics

Many believe that learning statistics is tough. To be honest it is not. If you are aware of the basic math and ready to put in some extra effort, learning statistics won’t be difficult for you. You just need a few steps, a right trajectory, and ta-da! You are near to the results. Also, statistics are fun to learn. It doesn’t make you bored nor will let you lose your interest midway.  

So, let’s have a look at some effective tips that we have jotted down to make statistics easier for you. 

Begin With the Cores of Statistics

Like every other subject, statistics also requires you to begin with the basics first. If you want to begin with statistics, it is very evident that you need to begin the core mathematics. Until you don’t know what the main principles of mathematics are, you cannot a grip on statistics.

This major requires time. If you think you can learn the entire statistics in one go, you are mistaken. You have to first have a solid grip on linear algebra, eigenvalues, eigenvectors, matrix operations, simultaneous equations, vectors, matrices, etc. Also, you need to have a stronghold of calculus and basic set theory.

  • Start learning about the following first.
  • Derivatives
  • Integrals with limits
  • Definite integrals
  • Sum and sequences
  • Multivariable calculus

Get a Grip on Critical Used Terms

If you are really into statistics, you must know there are often used terms that you cannot take for granted. Such as the ones below.

  • Median
  • Mode
  • Distribution
  • Probability
  • Standard Deviation
  • Outliers
  • Bell-Shaped Cur

The more knowledgeable and familiar you will get with these terms, the easier it will be for you to learn statistics. Some of them were or will be taught to you in your college life, for rest you can use the internet. However, you don’t need statistics coaching or any mathematics expert at first. Begin cramming yourself but also understand the concepts.

Learn About the Regression Analysis

Once you are done with cores and basic terms, get into technicalities now! Starting with regression, let me make one thing clear. Regression analysis is very advantageous yet but is misused. If you just think it yourself, can you tell me if a straight line is always the right way? To an extent it definitely is but oftentimes, curves take to better routes. Similar is the case here. In many situations, straight lines are entirely inappropriate. You might have to give a thought to adding curve fittings such as a nonlinear function or a higher degree polynomial.

This is not the only thing that comes in technicalities. There are more complex concepts that you have to pay attention to after basics. Like probability theory. Both of these go hand in or I should say we cannot separate these two. Similarly, there are other notions too that you can learn from time to time.

Proceed With Topics of Your Need

Now after you are completely aware of the technicalities and are familiar with the early notions of statistics, take a deep breath. When a newbie comes to this field, fundamental is challenging to learn. However, with all the above stages, one can get a solid grip on the primary concepts.

Next, you don’t have to follow any trajectory. Now is the time to keep enhancing your knowledge depending on your needs. The steps I need to follow at this stage might be different from yours and yours might be different from another friend of yours. So, be watchful and careful of the next step you are required to take.

One main step I’d like you to take is to learn about Monte Carlo methods. This learning will let you predict the results of repeated experiments. However, depends completely upon your area of interest.

Apply In Your Daily Life

When familiar with all the basic and complex concepts, now start employing them in your routine life. The best way to get hang of statistics is by applying them to your daily life. You can take benefit of this subject in various aspects like in decision making, spending money rightly and fruitfully, etc.

Conclusion

So, what do think now? Do you still think learning statistics is difficult? We hope not. It just requires you some tips and smart work and you are good to go. If you were also the one who always pay someone to do my course, please reconsider your decision. This temporary solution might help you get good marks today but will become a hurdle in university tomorrow. Therefore, listen to us and start learning statistics from today only. Little by little, you can make it one day, so don’t worry.

Once you master all these cores and basics, getting into the complex concepts will get a lot easier. So, worry not. If you still have any questions or queries, you can write to us in the comment section and we’ll get back to you.

Till then, happy learning! 🙂
