MAT 107 Statistics: Concepts and Controversies

Introductory—The course introduces statistics as a liberal arts discipline. It focuses on statistical ideas and their relevance to public policy and to the sciences, from medicine to sociology. The emphasis is on statistical reasoning, rather than statistical theory. The course covers reliable data generation, data summarization, and the classical approach to drawing conclusions from data (statistical inference). This course does not count towards the major or minor in mathematics. This course is offered irregularly.
