GTF: CLASSROOM & CLASS HOURS: 1:00 pm - 4:45 pm MW, Rowell Hlth 115, May 19, 2013 - June 27, 2014 TEXTBOOK: An Introduction to Statistical Methods and Data Analysis, 6th Ed. by R. Lyman Ott, Michael Longnecker, Brooks/Cole (ISBN -10= 0-495-01758-2) JMP and SAS, computer statistics software will be used ? You can sign up for an On-Demand Webcast called "Getting Started with JMP" ? at this URL: http://www.jmp.com/webforms/jmp_start_ondemand.shtml ? Live introduction to JMP webcasts are held weekly. You can register for one ? at: http://www.jmp.com/about/events/webcasts/index.shtml Course description: This course has two major objectives. (1) You will gain an understanding of several techniques used in the statistical analysis of data, including the underlying statistical models, and how they relate to specific research questions. (2) You will also learn how to implement and interpret analyses for different types of studies using statistical software. Putting this information together will allow you to formulate a research hypothesis, determine an appropriate statistical analysis method, carry out the analyses, and interpret the results. We will discuss ways of determining appropriate numbers of subjects/units to include in experiments and methods for verifying assumptions that underlie the statistical models. I expect that you will read the material in the text before we discuss it in class. COURSE OUTLINE: Chap. 1 - What is Statistics? Chap. 2 - Using Surveys and Scientific Studies to Gather Data.
