Think you're good at guessing stats? Guess again. Whether we consider ourselves math people or not, our ability to understand and work with numbers is terribly limited, says data visualization expert Alan Smith. In this delightful talk, Smith explores the mismatch between what we know and what we think we know.

Statistics is not a branch of mathematics as wikipedia and this guy say. Statistics is a science on its own, which makes use of mathematical tools to get its points across, just like physics does. Now, probability theory is a branch of math because it has been structured in such a way it is an axiomatic tree.
