This course is intended to be accessible to students without a mathematical background, as no concepts beyond basic algebra are required. The following topics will be covered: Contingency tables and the chi-squared test Analysis of variance in both one-way and two-way layouts Regression, with an emphasis on inference Nonparametric methods Since this course builds directly on material from STA 2023, concepts from that course will be briefly reviewed as needed. Textbook We will use all 15 chapters of Statistics: The Art and Science of Learning from Data , by Alan Agresti and Chris Franklin, Prentice Hall, 2008. The first edition (2007) will also work, but the chapters, examples, and homework problems might be numbered differently. Although the textbook will not be used for any graded assignments or required readings, you will still find it useful as a source of extra problems and as a reference for additional information or alternative explanations. 1
