What special knowledge to I need?

- You’ll probably be someone who has collected some data in an Excel spreadsheet or similar.
- You already know about basic bar charts and scatter plots. You know how to calculate the mean, and have heard of the standard deviation (but can’t remember how to calculate it.)
- You want to present your work either in a report or to your colleagues.
- You’re prepared to give up a few hours to learn a set of skills that you can use, and re-use in the future.
