**Stats Booster Modules**

A series where we explore some key mathematical/statistical concepts that may apply to Marxe grad courses such as 9170, 9172, 9165, 9177, **9270, 9271**, and **9272**. If you are currently taking a stats-based course, or if you just want to review previously learned material, this workshop might be a great complement to lectures, tutoring, and self-study.

Math/quant topics include: data, variables, sigma/summation notation, measures of central tendency, measures of dispersion, averages, variance, standard deviation
