When will I ever use it outside of school?” Jeffrey McClain, a postdoctoral fellow of Mathematics, Computer science and Statistics at St. Lawrence University, shares the importance of statistical literacy – of building the tools to interpret data on your own and tell the data’s story rather than only believing others’ interpretations of the data.


Postdoctoral fellow, Department of Mathematics, Computer Science, and Statistics
