# Intro to Statistical Science

Introduction to Statistical Science (formerly MATH 0116) 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.)

EMW is awesome. I think more professors should teach like her. There are two exams but they're both very chill. Homework is group-based and straightforward. The labs are probably the most challenging part of the class but she's available every step of the way.

Emily Malcolm-White is a phenomenal teacher who is very enthusiastic about the course material and accommodates a student's needs. The class consisted of lectures and going through notes that she provided and using latter part of the class to work through the assigned homework in groups. The exams contained similar material as the homework so their questions were not shocking or something out of a student's ability to answer. If you attend all classes and keep up in the work you will do fine.

Taking Intro to Stats with Emily Malcolm-White has been an awesome experience. EMW is very effective in her way of lecturing and is very good at correcting any misunderstandings. You have a chance to get the homework and labs done in class so you don't have to think that much about the class outside of class. As long as you did all the homework and notes for the lessons then the exams are pretty easy as well. I'd definitely recommend taking a class with EMW to anyone, she is amazing.
