STAT 1100Q: Elementary Concepts of Statistics


Instructor: Suman Majumdar

It is quite likely that your Honors thesis will require you to use a basket of tools that is often described as “research methods.” An overarching goal of this course is to prepare you to learn these tools and successfully use them.

Topics include: Standard and nonparametric approaches to statistical analysis; exploratory data analysis, elementary probability, sampling distributions, estimation and hypothesis testing, one- and two-sample procedures, regression and correlation. Learning to do statistical analysis on a personal computer is an integral part of the course.
