My name is Brittany Alexander and I am a college student currently studying Mathematics at Texas Tech University. My passion is statistics and how it affects the world around us. Currently I am researching methods of predicting elections in the United States. What I have learned in my research is that people may not understand statistics and the role they play in our lives. My goal is to educate people about basic statistical concepts like margin of error, correlation vs. causation, and why an average isn’t always the best way of finding the middle of a data set. Data is everywhere, from what TV shows we watch, to how many steps our fitness tracker records. I want to help you understand the world around you by explaining how you can use statistics in your daily life.
