# We can work on concepts of descriptive statistics

Concepts of descriptive statistics

This problem set assignment will involve activities designed to solidify the concepts learned in both Modules One and Two. Problems will be similar to those you will face on the quiz in Module Four and will include one or two real-world applications to prepare you to think like a biostatistician.

Check the module resource list to see which videos on the StatCrunch Help channel will help with this assignment.
