    Still mostly maths 

    Originally, I had intended this blog to be a tool I would use to help teach an introductory course on Statistics, but that plan changed when I switched to using UCLan’s own system (`Blackboard’) for managing course materials. So this blog has a new purpose: it will be a random, unplanned, haphazard collection of bits and bobs that pique my interest…. but it will always be `mostly maths’.

    Hello! A new semester at UCLan 

    Hello! I have decided to write a blog to accompany my teaching this semester at UCLan. I will be teaching MA1861 Introductory Statistics, and I hope that this blog will provide a forum for additional discussion and explanation of topics contained in the course and some beyond it…

    This blog will also host discussions of other topics (mostly mathsy) which take my fancy.

    The next post, to be written shortly, will give a provisional course outline.

    Edit: a slight change of purpose. There will be a blog on the `blackboard space’ for MA1861 (at for official course content. Instead, this blog will contain various mathematical-bits and sundry logical-bobs; some related to teaching and others not. But nothing that is not written on the blackboard space for MA1861 will be required reading for that module. Inevitably there will be some cross-posting.
