Cabbages: Stats Review

Well, almost all of the grades are in – all but one: Stats. So I will give a quick review before I become biased.

Led by Prof. Hawken, Stats was a journey into the meaning of numbers. Not always the most interesting subject, the class certainly is at the top of my list of practical skills needed to work in the policy world. Prof. Hawken made the often difficult process of seeing the other side of the numbers almost simple … almost.

In this highly technical class, we were called to see what data actually says, and we crept a bit into how exactly that information should be presented in the policy arena.

I look forward to taking another class with Prof Hawken in the future.
