This seminar focuses on the role of statistics and data analysis in undergraduate natural and social science courses. Its focus is on sharing applications of statistics that are central to each discipline, and a central goal will be to identify themes common across disciplines. This seminar will develop statistics modules that could be used in existing courses.

This course is being held in the Whitehead Campus Center - Room 313 on Thursdays, 10:00am - Noon. Coffee and tea will be served.
