For graduate and upper-level undergraduate students, with focus on practical aspects of statistical methods.Topics include: data description and display, probability, random variables, random sampling, estimation and hypothesis testing, one and two sample problems, analysis of variance, simple and multiple linear regression, contingency tables. Includes data analysis using a computer package. Prerequisites: high school algebra; junior standing or higher. [Note: Because this course presupposes knowledge of basic math skills, it will satisfy the R1 requirement upon successful completion.]

The non-honors version of the course covers basics of probability, random variables, binomial and normal distributions, central limit theorem, hypothesis testing, and simple linear regression. Through additional assigned readings and weekly discussions, the 1-credit honors colloquium will prepare students to conduct basic statistical studies by expanding on the material covered in Linear Regression and introducing the basics of ANOVA and analysis of categorical data, using the statistical package Minitab. Students will choose and complete a statistical project and will be graded on the final written product and presentation.

The increasing production of descriptive data sets and corresponding software packages has created a need for data visualization methods for many application areas. Data visualization allows for informing results and presenting findings in a structured way. This course provides an introduction to graphical data analysis and data visualization. Topics covered include exploratory data analysis, data cleaning, examining features of data structures, detecting unusual data patterns, and determining trends. The course will also introduce methods to choose specific types of graphics tools and understanding information provided by graphs. The statistical programming language R is used for the course.

This course provides an introduction to the statistical techniques that are most applicable to data science. Topics include regression, classification, resampling, linear model selection and regularization, tree-based methods, support vector machines and unsupervised learning. The course includes a computing component using statistical software.

Discrete/Categorical data are prevalent in many applied fields, including biological and medical sciences, social and behavioral sciences, and economics and business. This course provides an applied treatment of modern methods for visualizing and analyzing broad patterns of association in discrete/categorical data. Topics include forms of discrete data, visualization/exploratory methods for discrete data, discrete data distributions, correspondence analysis, logistic regression models, models for polytomous responses, loglinear and logit Models for contingency tables, and generalized linear models. This course is primarily an applied statistics course. While models and methods are written out carefully with some basic mathematical derivations, the primary focus of the course is on the understanding of the visualization and modeling techniques for discrete data, presentation of associated models/methods, data analysis, interpretation of results, statistical computation and model building.

Regression analysis is the most popularly used statistical technique with application in almost every imaginable field. The focus of this course is on a careful understanding and of regression models and associated methods of statistical inference, data analysis, interpretation of results, statistical computation and model building. Topics covered include simple and multiple linear regression; correlation; the use of dummy variables; residuals and diagnostics; model building/variable selection; expressing regression models and methods in matrix form; an introduction to weighted least squares, regression with correlated errors and nonlinear regression. Extensive data analysis using SAS (no previous computer experience assumed). Requires prior coursework in Statistics, preferably ST516, and basic matrix algebra. Satisfies the Integrative Experience requirement for BA-Math and BS-Math majors.

This course will introduce students to Bayesian data analysis, including modeling and computation. We will begin with a description of the components of a Bayesian model and analysis (including the likelihood, prior, posterior, conjugacy and credible intervals). We will then develop Bayesian approaches to models such as regression models, hierarchical models and ANOVA. Computing topics include Markov chain Monte Carlo methods. The course will have students carry out analyses using statistical programming languages and software packages.
