- Background and Goals: This first course in statistics for graduate students is intended to give students a background in the statistical methods that will assist them in the analysis of data generated from research in the biological sciences. Students will learn several methods for summarizing and describing data in addition to techniques for using sample data to make inferences about a larger population. This is a non-calculus-based course. Students will be introduced to statistical software; however, there is not a lab associated with this course.
- Content: Data collection, descriptive statistics, random variables and probability distributions, sampling distributions, inference for population means and proportions, ANOVA, multiple comparisons, chi-square tests, regression and correlation.
