This course introduces students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, organizing, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Students explore data by recognizing patterns and departures from patterns, plan studies by determining what to measure and how to measure it, and anticipate patterns by producing models using probability concepts. They use both real data collection and computer simulations for their data collection. Students make statistical inferences to confirm the validity of their models.
