A case for Statistics !

As a student of science and then engineering , I studied calculus .

I am sure that its true for majority of management students in India , many are from Engineering background. And for all of them Statistics is a shock . Still a bigger shock for non-quanta background students ( like humanities and arts ).

Here is a impressive clip by Mathemagician Arthur Benjamin . He argues the case for Statistics. In a interesting way he explains why calculus forms major part of our mathematical study and more important - why it should be replaced by Statistics . Being a student of management science ,I really appreciate argument and hope statistics will form a major part of basic education in future.

Those who wish to see Arthur's magic check here.
