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. S

Students who have taken a semester of calculus (MATH 111 or higher, or equivalent placement) or who are planning to major in statistics should take STAT 135/MATH 135 or STAT 136 instead of this course. (Students who have taken STAT/MATH 135, STAT136, PSYC 122, or ECON 360/361 may not also receive credit for STAT 111. STAT 111 does not count towards the major in Mathematics.)
