In this course, students complete an applied statistics field project that has been solicited from researchers in biological, physical, or social sciences. The instructor supplies applied as well as statistical methodology readings for the students. The readings serve to extend what students have learned in prior classes, and especially to help students learn to apply statistical methodology to problems from real-world applications. The students work in groups of 2, and they have to write a 10-20 page technical report and prepare a poster to summarize the project. Satisfies the Integrative Experience requirement for BA-Math and BS-Math majors. Prerequisites: Previous coursework in Probability and Statistics, such as Statistc 516 or 501, as well as Statistc 505 and 506 including knowledge of estimation, intervals, and hypothesis testing, or permission of instructor.
