Math 546 Applied Statistics (Graduate)

In general, statistics is concerned with the development and application of methods and theories for collecting, analyzing and interpreting data in such a way that the reliability of the conclusions based on the data may be evaluated objectively by the use of probability theory. When we speak of the statistics involved in a baseball game, we are using descriptive statistics. Thus, this course is primarily the study of inferential statistics as it is related to probability theory. The course will include theory but will focus primarily on the application of statistics, specifically as it relates to data science.
