Videos

Statistics is surprisingly interesting with Dr Nic. Dr Nic and Creative Maths now have over 50 learning videos in our Statistics Learning Centre series.

The videos are popular and useful. You don’t need to take our work for it, see the volumes of feedback we have received from many satisfied learners.

The videos are used in New Zealand schools, at universities and other tertiary institutions around the world and by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

Our YouTube channel receives over a million views each year with 38,000 subscribers by April 2018. That is an excellent reach for a channel dedicated to teaching statistics and mathematics.

We have even more fantastic videos available through our paid Vimeo channels and through our Statistics Learning Centre courses[link] for New Zealand teachers and learners of NCEA Statistics Levels 1-3.
