Part 2 – Math Booster
Description: Regain familiarity with core abilities and develop new ways of thinking. Master the concepts below to replace ignorance with knowledge and mistakes with accurate conclusions.
Starring: Exercises and explanations, the order of operations (PEMDAS), writing and solving equations you will need to work with, using and reporting numbers, types of numbers (it matters), avoiding hand calculation of anything (learning Excel), error checking, and the final re-review.

Types of data
Part 3 – Labs: Under Construction
- (Under Construction) Labs – Basic skill builders, example research scenarios, example data, detailed steps, concept testing along the way, interpret results.
Lab 1) Preparing your mind for useful math.
Get into a positive frame of mind, gather your tools, and then reboot many of the little bits and pieces of reason and math. Eliminate the most common errors by reviewing and re-learning critical concepts.
Skills we will use: Fear reduction and anticipating reward, logical thinking, bias checking, making educated guesses, attention to detail (awareness building), finding some free tools, the scientific method, using questions to guide calculation, and telling others about our work here.
Part 2, Describing what we find.
Starring: Logical thinking, bias checking, making educated guesses, using questions to guide calculation, measures of central tendency, measures of variation, and some of the questions we use to create common sense.
