DATA 152: Inferential Statistics with R
This course gives students a solid grounding in the theory and practice of basic inferential statistics: confidence intervals, hypothesis testing (including chi-squared tests and ANOVA), and linear regression. Students will implement these techniques using R, a statistical programming language. The course also introduces the topics from probability theory needed to understand these methods (Law of Large Numbers and the Central Limit Theorem), and introduces students to the computational techniques needed to carry out these tests, including randomization and resampling. Students will develop the skills to write well-defined research questions, test hypotheses, and communicate results in a manner that facilitates action by decision makers.
