- 1 - University of Colorado at Boulder Department of Economics Prof. Jeffrey S. Zax Economics 3818 [email protected] Syllabus and Schedule 303-492-8268 17 August 2005 Welcome. I am Prof. Jeffrey S. Zax. This is Economics 3818, Introduction to Statistics With Computer Applications . Course description: The purpose of this course is to establish basic competency in statistical analysis. Basic competency requires familiarity with the formal properties of the covariance, the correlation coefficient, essential probability distributions, hypothesis tests, confidence intervals and regression analysis. It also requires an intuitive understanding of the value of these properties, as well as of the appropriate use of numerical data as evidence. Lastly, some capacity to distinguish between appropriate and inappropriate statistical arguments is essential. The material to be mastered in this class is contained in the lectures and recitations, the assigned textbook, Statistics for Economics: An Intuitive Approach by Alan S. Caniglia, problem sets and computer exercises. The material on summations in Caniglia’s Chapter 2 is prerequisite for this course. Assignments, solution sets to assignments and examinations and other communications will be posted at the course website, www.colorado.edu/Economics/Zax/Econ3818. This course will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:30 p.m. until 1:45 p.m. throughout the semester in Hellems 199. I will hold regular office hours between 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and between 2:00p.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Thursdays in my office, Economics 111. Appointments can be made for meetings at other times, if these are inconvenient. Ms. Xiaofei Yang is the Teaching Assistant for this course.
