Provides an overview of the field of statistics, including methods of summarizing and analyzing data, statistical reasoning for learning from observations (experimental or sample), and techniques for dealing with uncertainties in drawing conclusions from collected data. Emphasis is on presenting underlying concepts rather than covering a variety of different methodologies. Course evaluation is based on a combination of a Thursday evening midterm examination, a final examination, and GSI input.

In this course students are introduced to the concepts and applications of statistical methods and data analysis. Statistics 350 has no prerequisite and has been elected by students whose mathematics background includes only high school algebra. Examples of applications are drawn from virtually all academic areas and some attention is given to statistical process control methods. The course format includes lectures (3 hours per week) and a laboratory (1.5 hours per week). The laboratory section deals with the computational aspects of the course and provides a forum for review of lecture material. For this purpose, students are introduced to the use of a statistical analysis-computer package. Course evaluation is based on a combination of two examinations, a final examination, weekly homework, and lab participation.
