Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Math Professor Says Teach Stats Over Calculus:


I simply do not get it. Why do we have to choose only one?

We don't. It's just that for most math curricula calculus is the be all and end all. It's clearly not as useful to everyday folks as statistics.

I've got a big bias, but my feeling is that we need to teach stats to the students who aren't studying any calculus.

Absolutely! Statistics is more practical and valuable in the real world.

How much can you understand about statistics without learning calculus?

I guess I don't get what we're talking about. Are we saying that kids should learn how to compute averages and standard deviations? I thought they already taught that in algebra.

What does "teaching statistics" mean? How can you understand even basic concepts from statistics without calculus?

And why is calculus still considered so hard three-hundred years after it was invented. There is simply nothing mysterious or difficult about calculus. I think we need to get over this whole attitude of mysticism about mathematics.

Tim: As I wrote on my blog, Truth on the Market, I think Tyler is pretty far off base with this one. See http://www.truthonthemarket.com/2009/04/28/what-does-tyler-know-about-law-and-economics-anyway/

I would have never guessed that chereogrphers would need anything,

Thanks for writing about it

I guess the point is to give and save as much as you can and make your money work for you like the good servant we should strive to be.

faulty logic-- swooning over a character in a movie doesn't equal hitting on someone. men of all ages have been drooling over the likes of britney spears (when she first came out), taylor swift, and even dakota fanning now for ages. megan fox is something like 23 and i know for a fact that 40 year old men make no secret of wanting to bang her stupid.

as for cradle-robbing relationships, most girls i know date older guys, whereas dudes tend to date younger. way younger. case in point: a 32 year old male friend dating a 20 year old girl. for that matter, that same friend and i had sexy times and he's six years older than i am.

These kind of post are always inspiring and I prefer to read quality content so I happy to find many good point here in the post, writing is simply great, thank you for the post
