Spring 2023

I 306 Statistics for Informatics

Unique ID: 28075


05:00 PM - 06:30 PM  JES A203A


We will describe data using visual and numerical descriptions (visualization and summary statistics). We will learn to make predictions and draw inferences using simple and multiple linear regression. We will learn classification using logistic regression. We will learn how to interpret diagnostic plots that accompany linear models. We will practice all these things using R and RStudio, which will be taught as part of the class. Some math and programming is not required but will be helpful in reducing the workload in the class. A statistics course is required but other statistics courses can be substituted for this one. This course counts for the Quantitative Reasoning flag, starting in Fall 2024.
