Statistics is usually perceived as dry, boring and not very useful in everyday life. In this public lecture, Dr Nicolas Greliche will try to show you that this is far from true. Following the strange day of a fictitious JCU student, you will see how Statistics can be used in a fun and interesting way to rescue this student from several uncomfortable situations. Chances are (p<0.001) that at the end you will be convinced that Statistics could well at one time or another also save your day.
