This course is intended to achieve statistical literacy. It will introduce the students to the very basic statistical concepts and methods, but most importantly, it will familiarize the students with statistical thinking and reasoning and enable the students to assess quantitative information or research findings critically. I strongly encourage students to spend time on R, the statistical software package chosen for this course. I think hands-on experience is the key to building statistical sense and skills. I will spend some class time on R, and the practice problems will include some R related questions. R is not required for the exams.
