Statistics 213: Introduction to Applied Statistics Learning Outcomes. This course emphasizes statistical literacy and develops statistical thinking. Statistical literacy is promoted throughout the text in the many examples and exercises, drawn from published research findings and the popular press. Many of the examples and exercises discussed will highlight the central role of probability and statistics in 21 st century science. Within the advent of genomics and proteomics, biological science has evolved from a mainly experimental science performed at the bench to one in which probabilistic models and statistical analysis techniques play a significant role. Students should understand how to adequately interpret and communicate statistical results. Understanding the nature and role of variability is key to developing sound skills in statistical thinking.
