In this course, students develop statistical methods and apply them to problems encountered in the biological and environmental sciences. Methods include data visualization, population parameter estimation, sampling, bootstrap resampling, hypothesis testing, the Normal and other probability distributions, and an introduction to linear modeling. Applied analysis is carried out in the R statistical computing environment.

Outcome 1: Students will be able to design an experiment using randomization techniques.

Outcome 2: Students will be able to use R Markdown for reproducible research.

Outcome 3: Students will be able to produce effective graphical summaries of collected data.

Outcome 4: Students will learn how sampling distributions are determined and utilized for statistical analysis.

Outcome 5: Students will understand why some estimators are more desirable than others.

Outcome 6: Students will be able to perform a variety of basic statistical analyses including: t-tests, ANOVA, two-sample t-tests, tests for categorical data, linear regression and multiple linear regression.

Outcome 7: Students will be able to assess the quality of a statistical analysis.
