Statistical Methods


This course provides an introduction to probability and statistical methods.

Part of the objective of this course is to introduce you to data analysis with a help of R. However, you can choose any other statistical software or programming language instead -- like Python, Matlab, or Scala -- as long as you are able to follow the R examples given in class, and convert them to the language of your choice. This course does not assume prior programing knowledge, and you will get familiar with R enough to solve homework problems. Please check our software page on a regular basis for tips.

 

Required text:

"Probability and Statistics for Engineering and the Sciences", by J. Devore. (Note: old editions can be used.)

Supplementary text, great for R:

"Probability and Statistics with R", 2nd Edition, by Ugarte, Militino, and Arnholt.
