Statistics: An Activity-Based Approach|
This course will introduce the concepts and methods used in the analysis of quantitative data in the behavioral and life sciences. The approach will emphasize activity-based learning. Lectures will be used for the initial presentation and wrap-up of topics, but most class time will be devoted to activities in which students perform analyses. The topics covered will include descriptive statistics, sampling distributions, estimation, hypothesis testing, analysis of variance, and regression. Students who are considering psychology or neuroscience & behavior as a major must take this course graded. All sections of this course will satisfy the statistics requirement for the Psychology major and the methodological requirement for the neuroscience & behavior major.
This course is specifically devoted to quantitative reasoning. We use statistical concepts and techniques to organize, describe, and draw inferences from quantitative data in the domain of psychology. All tests, homework, computer labs, and final data analysis project focus on quantitative reasoning skills.
