Statistics and Their Presentation (MAT2114.01)

Kathryn Montovan

Statistics is the art of finding meaning in mathematical abstracts. It is looking at patterns and trying to reason what those patterns mean for the future. Statistics have pervaded modern society–politics, business, economics, and all walks of science depend on statistics and the models contained within to estimate and confirm patterns within their data. This course will focus on learning the basic statistical methods and how to present that data to others. We will focus on regression, correlation, probability, and inference, finishing the course with ANOVA testing. We will combine this statistical knowledge with data presentation, searching for the clearest ways to present knowledge to others. This is an introductory course. No formal prerequisites are required, but a comfort/ability with mathematics including algebra is a necessity.
