This blog gives ideas to help teachers and learners of Statistics and Operations Research. As decision sciences with a mathematical foundation, both these disciplines can be difficult to teach and understand. The emergence of computer packages such as Excel have changed the way these subjects can be taught, potentially making them more accessible and hands-on.
There are many good blogs about the application of statistics and operations research, but few about teaching these inherently interesting subjects. This blog aims to fit in that gap, entertaining, inspiring and helping teachers and learners alike.
