Course Number: 
Amherst College

(Offered as STAT 111E and ENST 240.) Introduction to Statistics provides a basic foundation in descriptive and inferential statistics, including constructing models from data.  Students will learn to think critically about data, produce meaningful graphical and numerical summaries of data, apply basic probability models, and utilize statistical inference procedures using computational tools.  Topics include basic descriptive and inferential statistics, visualization, study design, and multiple regression.  Students who are majoring in mathematics should take STAT 135/MATH 135 instead of this course. ENST majors are strongly encouraged to take this version of the course, but it is open to all students. Four class hours per week (two will be held in the computer lab).  Labs are not interchangeable between sections due to course content.

Limited to 24 students. Spring semester. Professor Wagaman.
