The Internet, libraries, and government documents can provide you with the data you need to make a convincing presentation, whether you are proposing a new project or method at your job, pitching your startup company to potential investors, selecting the best use of your nonprofits funding, or supporting your research findings. Drawing on elements of statistics and research methods, students learn to 1) identify the situations where numbers can strengthen a case, 2) find the best sources for reliable data, and 3) organize, graph, and present information in the most compelling way. This course is for those who wish to sharpen their abilities with numbers and develop visual and graphical presentation skills using software like Excel.
