An Oldie: My Statistics Series
Came across it while searching for something else. I wrote it nine years ago for the single purpose of helping people to understand opinion polls and some research findings.
It's not bad (though very limited, like visiting NYC for a week and then making deductions about the US), so you might want to look at it if you need help with means, medians and margins of error.
That series also demonstrates a common problem with my writing: I get tired towards the end. I should have added a long example with careful explanations. But I just went on to something more interesting...
Still, it's one opening to the wonderful land of statistics.
