This course is an intermediate applied statistics course that builds on the statistical data analysis methods introduced in STAT 111/111E or STAT 135. Students will learn how to pose a statistical question, perform appropriate statistical analysis of the data, and properly interpret and communicate their results. Emphasis will be placed on the use of statistical software, data wrangling, model fitting, and assessment. Topics covered will include ethics, experimental design, resampling approaches, analysis of variance models, multiple regression, model selection, and logistic regression. No prior experience with statistical software is expected.

This course is expected to be a mixture of synchronous and asynchronous meetings, including small-group discussions and/or projects, which will foster community building. 

Requisite: STAT 111 or 135. Limited to 24 students. Four spots reserved for incoming first-year students in each Fall section. Fall and Spring semester. Professor Liao.

If Overenrolled: For the Fall, priority for rising sophomores. For the Spring, priority for sophomores.
