In this world of information explosion, we are constantly bombarded by numbers. How do you make sense of those numbers? How can you tell which are used correctly and which are not? How can we use statistical tools to inform, to explore and to empower? What are the larger frameworks behind those numbers? How do we use quantitative reasoning to enhance our understanding of the society and make changes? This class will put statistics into context. We will cover basic statistical concepts and processes used in social sciences including descriptive and inferential statistics. Focus will be placed on real life scenarios and sense making practices. Besides workshops, students will conduct a research project and practice statistical analysis. This course meets the statistics prerequisite requirements of the Evergreen Master of Public Administration (MPA) program and the Master in Teaching (MiT) general college math prerequisite.
