Statistics I (A)
Fall 2016 quarter
Ever feel the urge to question the reams of data that swirl around us every day? Want to develop tools that make you a more powerful presenter? Statistics is what you need! This course is an introduction to statistics for students with limited if any formal exposure to data and data analysis, and no experience with statistics. This class will introduce the student to the statistical process, including data collection, ways of organizing data, an introduction to data analysis, and an opportunity to learn how practitioners present their findings. We will examine several case studies, explore how data is used in explaining unusual events, and develop a more critical understanding about how statistics allows us to understand the world around us.
