“Statistics can be fun.” This is not only Dr. Hua’s view of statistics, it is also Dr. Hua’s teaching philosophy. His approach to teaching statistics is to present the material as an enjoyable activity with more practical applications that may be immediately obvious. He does not see statistics as work, he sees it as fun, and he discusses statistics with the same zeal that he would talk about a favorite hobby or movie. Dr. Hua strives to apply this philosophy to all of the classes that he teaches at Marshall B. Ketchum University.
