 ```Resampling methods have been in use for more than three decades now and most readers of my course notices have probably encountered or applied it. But it had a rocky start – when resampling first appeared on the scene, some greeted it with skepticism and even ridicule. The idea of drawing "resamples" from your original sample seemed somehow incestuous. The idea stuck, and resampling became a breakthrough idea in statistics. Learn more in my online course, "Introduction to Resampling Methods," Feb. 25 - March 25. Upcoming courses: Feb 11: Modeling in R Feb 18: Multivariate Statistics Feb 25: Introduction to Resampling Methods (more below) Mar 18: The Bootstrap (a natural follow-on to Resampling) “Introduction to Resampling Methods” introduces the basic concepts and methods of resampling, including bootstrap procedures and permutation (randomization) tests. The approach of the course is to teach inference -- interval estimation, one-two- and k-sample comparisons, correlation, regression – from a resampling perspective, without complex theory, mathematics or confusing statistical notation. It is a companion course to two other more advanced courses on bootstrap methods and randomization tests. The course will require about 15 hours per week; there are no set hours when you must be online. Participants can ask questions and exchange comments directly with me via a private discussion board throughout the period. A bit about me: In addition to running (and teaching at) statistics.com, I co-developed Resampling Stats software (used in the course) and distribute XLMiner data mining software. I have written some on resampling, and am a co-author of "Data Mining for Business Intelligence" (Wiley, 2nd ed. 2010).
