Science—Mendel’s Too-Good Peas

Taught by Professor Michael Starbird | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses

Statistics is essential in sciences from weather forecasting to quantum physics. This lecture discusses the statistics-based research of Johannes Kepler, Edwin Hubble, and Gregor Mendel.
