## Welcome!

Sometimes navigating through a statistics course may feel like you are stuck in a maze. You know there is a solution to a problem, but you don’t know how to find the quickest, easiest path to the solution.

This website, my blog site Dr.DawnWright.com, and my You Tube channel The Stats Files are dedicated to making it easier to use technology to help you with your statistics and analytics courses. And in the “real” world as well.

I also work hard to find ways to present the concepts in simple, easy to understand ways. I search out and share here links to resources by others who have done a good job explaining stats and analytics. In some ways, I am more like Scully than Mulder (see Inspiration below)

So please feel free to browse my site and make suggestions for things I have yet to cover.

## Ispiration

The inspiration for the site name comes from a favorite TV series of mine, The X-Files, that began in 1993 and ran until just after the new Millenium began.  In part, the series has to do with cases the FBI deemed unsolvable and those involving paranormal phenomena.

The two main characters in the series are Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. “Mulder believes in the existence of aliens and the paranormal while Scully, a medical doctor and a skeptic, is assigned to scientifically analyze Mulder’s discoveries, offer alternate rational theories to his work, and thus return him to mainstream cases.”  (Wikipedia)

To many students, statistics seems at first to be in a strange language and full of foreign concepts that are difficult for ordinary people to understand. I sometimes think of myself as a “Scully” intent on breaking through the mist and fog and finding rational, understandable reasons and methods for solving problems.

Hope you enjoy the journey!
