Faculty: Dr. Michael E. Tarter Telephone: (510) 642-4601 Email: tarter@.Berkeley.edu Office: 779 University Hall (Uhall) Class Mailbox in the Environmental Health Suite (760 Uhall), near the Xerox machine, listed as Tarter Goals and Objectives Although the topics discussed are elementary, this is in no way an elementary statistics course. Instead, it was designed for researchers and students who are unfamiliar with the recent statistics literature but who have at least a one year background in calculus. This background is needed to consider advances made by pioneer researchers with an eye to reconsidering their inquiries from a modern viewpoint.
