Introduction to statistical methods and reasoning. Statistical methods are useful in dealing with situations that are subject to uncertain outcomes. We will develop skills that allow for the incorporation of uncertainty into the analysis of quantitative problems. We will study how data are collected and described (experimental design and sample surveys), probability, the law of large numbers, expected value, standard error, confidence intervals, and tests of significance, one- and two-sample problems, correlation and regression.
