Join Queen’s lecturer Chuck Molson for his entertaining presentation “What Is Statistics, Anyway?” On Tuesday, September 15, this life-long Kingston resident will give the fifth of our free monthly talks in the new KFPL Live Monthly Speakers' Series. Most of us probably think statistics is too complicated for regular people to grasp, though it’s essential for many fields of science. But Chuck Molson will show you that statistics is really an extension of everyday thinking — and crucial to understanding many aspects of everyday life. Among other things, he'll explain how stats can be used to determine how much the variability in people is due to nature as opposed to nurture. “He's an engaging speaker, whose students at Queen's rated him 4.7 out of 5 on Rate My Professors.com,” says Anne Hall, Programming and Outreach Librarian. “And he promises that neither you nor your kids will need a mathematical background to enjoy his talk." This month's talk will be given at the Central branch on Tuesday, September 15, at 7 p.m. For more information, visit www.kfpl.ca.
