Introductory Courses

The Department of Statistics offers three first introductory courses, STAT W1001, W1111, and W1211. All three may be taken without preparation in statistics. All three cover roughly the same concepts, but differ substantially in the mathematical maturity that is assumed and in the sophistication of the examples.


STAT W1001 is for students who have no more than the most basic algebra, and may be of interest to students in non-mathematical disciplines seeking to satisfy the Quantitative and Deductive Reasoning requirement. STAT W1111 is for students who have mastered basic algebra; practice is emphasized over mathematical theory. STAT W1211 is for students with competence in differential and integral calculus and emphasizes theory over practice.

STAT W1211 or W1111 may be substituted for ECON BC2411 in satisfaction of the major requirements in Economics. STAT W1211 is required for the major in Mathematics-Statistics, Economics-Statistics, and Statistics, and the for the concentration in Statistics. STAT W1001 and W1111 may be applied to the major requirement in Political Science-Statistics. Students that declared their major in Psychology prior to the 2008-2009 academic year may satisfy their major requirements with STAT W1111 or W1211 in lieu of PSYC BC1101.

STAT W2110 follows on the material of the three introductory courses, and is designed for students interested in developing practical skills. Applications of statistics to current issues in the sciences and social sciences are emphasized.


STAT W 1001x and y Introduction to Statistical Reasoning

A friendly introduction to statistical concepts and reasoning with emphasis on developing statistical intuition rather than on mathematical rigor. Topics include design of experiments, descriptive statistics, correlation and regression, probability, chance variability, sampling, chance models, and tests of significance.
Prerequisites: Some high school algebra. BC: Fulfillment of General Education Requirement: Quantitative and Deductive Reasoning (QUA)..

STAT W 4400y Statistical Machine Learning

The course will provide an introduction to Machine Learning and its core models and algorithms. The aim of the course is to provide students of statistics with detailed knowledge of how Machine Learning methods work and how statistical models can be brought to bear in computer systems - not only to analyze large data sets, but to let computers perform tasks that traditional methods of computer science are unable to address. Examples range from speech recognition and text analysis through bioinformatics and medical diagnosis. This course provides a first introduction to the statistical methods and mathematical concepts which make such technologies possible. - Peter Orbanz
