This course introduces the basics of statistical analysis that can be used in either a scientific or a social science frame of reference.

While this course teaches you to perform both nonparametric and simple parametric analysis both by hand and computer, an emphasis will be placed on understanding the principles and assumptions of each test, rather than mathematical ability per se.

We will also learn how to report statistical results in journal format, and there will be plenty of lab time to sharpen skills.

Evaluation is based on lab participation, three quizzes, and a team project.

Prerequisites:

A college mathematics course, or signature of the instructor.
