This course counts toward the 60 credits of math/science required for a Bachelor of Science degree.
Repeatability:
May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

In this course we will study the basic concepts and techniques of quantitative data analysis. We will also learn some statistical computing skills using Stata. While there will be an emphasis on statistical techniques as they are used by social scientists, the course will provide the foundation needed for statistical analysis in many fields. A second important goal of the course is to teach you to be an informed consumer of social science research that uses statistical methods. By the end of the course you should have the background to evaluate many of the research claims made in academic work and public discourse.

Course Requirements:

Grades will be based on exams and homework assignments. The lab sessions will be used to discuss problems encountered in the lectures and homework assignments and to develop statistical computing skills.

Intended Audience:

We will not use math beyond basic algebra, and you do not need previous statistical computing experience. Furthermore, you need not be a "math-oriented" person to do well in this course. Students who apply good study skills — consistently attending class and lab meetings, reading assigned texts, and doing all assigned work on time — can expect to do well in the course.
