After 8 fantastic weeks of working with Ben on the good, the bad, and the ugly of Pop Science, it’s time to move on to a new Sunday series.
When I give my talk to high school students, one of my biggest struggles is really not having time to cover any math. That’s what I really love, but it’s pretty much impossible in a short time frame and when I’ve tried I always feel like I do kids a disservice. I mentioned some of this struggle in Part 7 of my Internet Science series, and I realized I probably have enough to say about this that I can make a whole series about it.
A few likely posts you’ll be seeing:
- That sneaky average
- Base rates and other shenanigans
- Independence and Probability
- To replicate or not to replicate
- Correlation and causation
If you’d like to see anything else, let me know!
