STAT 011. Statistical Methods I
STAT 011 prepares students to carry out basic statistical analyses using computer software. Topics include summary statistics and graphics, design of surveys and experiments, one and two-sample t-tests and tests of proportions, and an introduction to simple linear regression. The course is intended for students who want a practical introduction to statistical methods. Students who receive credit for AP Statistics should not take this course; they will receive credit for Stat 11 and lose their AP credit if they take it.
Note that the material of STAT 011 overlaps with ECON 031 , but these courses have different emphasis.
