# Intro to Statistical Science

Introduction to Statistical Science A practical introduction to statistical methods and the examination of data sets. Computer software will play a central role in analyzing a variety of real data sets from the natural and social sciences. Topics include descriptive statistics, elementary distributions for data, hypothesis tests, confidence intervals, correlation, regression, contingency tables, and analysis of variance. The course has no formal mathematics prerequisite, and is especially suited to students in the physical, social, environmental, and life sciences who seek an applied orientation to data analysis. (Credit is not given for MATH 0116 if the student has taken ECON 0111 (formerly ECON 0210) or PSYC 0201 previously or concurrently.)

This class is fantastic! Alex always brings enthusiasm and excitement to the material we are learning. He provides clear explanations to concepts in his lectures and is happy to work with you outside the classroom if needed. As a result, I have never felt that I was falling behind because he created an environment where almost everyone is on the same page with the material. While some of the concepts in the class can be more difficult than others, he sets the pace to the level of understanding of the majority of the class. All in all, I would recommend this course to anyone whose curious or interested in statistics, especially if it's taught by Alex!

Alex had a different level of enthusiasm for teaching this course that made the semester very enjoyable. He made himself available to his students as much as possible and always offered time outside of class to go over problem sets. The workload was consistently manageable and I strongly recommend this course for anybody who has potential interest early on in the field of statistics.

This is a good class to take for non-math majors who would like to gain some knowledge in basic statistics, hypothesis testing, probability, etc. There's weekly homework but shouldn't take up too much time. There's two mid-terms and one final exam, but as long as you pay attention in class, these should not be too difficult. I took this class as preparation for my research in graduate school and all of the materials turn out to be useful!

Emily is the perfect instructor for any beginner in statistical science. She explains things clearly, she gives you ample time in class to start on homework or assignments, and she is always available to answer questions and help with errors. She never makes you feel anxious about the new material and makes R seem incredibly easy to understand. Her grading is super fair and I think it would actually be very hard to not get a good grade in her classes

Professor gave time to finish almost all homework during class. Professor was clear and homework helped me grasp concepts. This course also offered an approachable introduction to R for statistical analysis. Would absolutely recommend if interested in statistics or just to get the MATH distribution requirement completed in a chill environment. I got an A- overall, I think because I didn't do as well on the final.

The course was effectively taught. Professor Emily really made sure each concept was understandable for each student. This course has helped me grasp the fundamentals of statistics and really understand what statistical tests are needed for different situations

Very relaxed and chill course. EMW was a great teacher for an intro course. I was able to complete the homework in class everyday and never had to work outside of class. Tests were open note open internet so I rarely had to do copious studying.

Very good and easy course, with open note tests and time for HW in class. There is a coding element that surprised me but that is also quite easy as Emily is very accommodating and helpful. Id recommend strongly.

Alex is a great professor who is clearly passionate about the material. He knows R very well and you can ask him a question knowing he's not going to beat around the bush. He's very transparent and will help you move on with the question. A quick-paced class that will teach you great statistical analysis and practice.

Professor Peterson is a great professor who was able to keep a relatively boring class interesting. The workload was very manageable with weekly homework assignments and labs. Exams were not too difficult, there is just a lot of material to memorize.

Malcolm-White is great, extremely friendly, effective at teaching and very understanding. Class is quite easy, normally consist of ~50 minutes of lecture with notes given out in class. The remainder of class time is used to get a start on homework. Homework is helpful and attached to notes, which has everything you need for the homework.

I absolutely loved this class! The professor was so enthusiastic about the teaching and one of the most personable professors I've had! She goes out of her way to accommodate all students and I cannot recommend her enough! She is so knowledgable and the way she conducts class is amazing - often giving time in class to start homework. This class with Professor Malcolm-White is a must take.

Really easy course pretty much a repeat of AP stats. Alex is awesome and definitely a professor you want. There were problem sets and labs in R. The problem sets were easy and the R labs were pretty basic.

Prof Lyford is very accommodating and spends the time necessary for students to understand the material with his many office hours that he offers. Furthermore, he also makes his lectures very interactive to better allow for students to understand the material that is being presented overall 10/10.

Professor Alex Lyford is very passionate about teaching and statistics. Anyone remotely interested in mathematics or statistics should 110% take this course! After taking this course, you can write "Statistical Analyst" on your resume.

She is the best professor I have ever had. She made learning enjoyable and she taught very well. She was super nice and she pretty much held your hand while you went through the material in class. She is very understanding and a joy to know.
