EMP 874   Y. Dobyns   3 credits
Survey of Statistical Methods and Reasoning  


This course is intended to give the student a basic grounding in both the theory and practice of a wide variety of statistical methods. Introductory material will be available for students who have had no experience at all with probability and statistics, but the course as a whole will proceed from the assumption that students are familiar with at least some basic concepts of the field. The students are expected to gain at least basic familiarity with a wide toolkit of standard statistical tests and the types of data for which they are appropriate. In addition to basic analysis tools students will be introduced to the topics of Bayesian statistical inference, meta-analysis, statistical power analysis, and basic concepts of experimental design.

Students will be expected to install the R software package for statistical analysis and graphics.
