This course prepares students to carry out basic statistical analyses using computer software.

The course is intended for students who want a practical introduction to statistical methods. Students may not receive credit for both Stat 011 and AP Statistics.
Note that the material of STAT 011 overlaps with ECON 031  , but these courses have different emphasis.
