Description: This course is an introduction to statistical methodology, focusing on the probability and statistical theory underlying the estimation of parameters and testing of hypotheses. Students are exposed to basic data exploration, summarization of graphical display of data, axioms of probability, distributions and related theory, parameter estimation, and statistical inference. Advanced topics include linear correlation and regression analysis. Students will perform calculations with statistical software such as R/RStudio. Please note that, because of the significant overlap between them, students may earn credit for only one of these courses: STAT 211, STAT 212, STAT 213, or BIOL/STAT 214.This course is recommend for students majoring in Statistics, Economics, or Computer Science, or students looking for a mathematical introduction to statistics who are likely to continue on to other upper-level methodology courses.
