Teaching

Current Courses (Summer 2024)

  • STAT0001 - Intro To Stat & Data Sci

    In this course, we will learn introductory statistics using R with a focus on the application of statistical thinking to business problems. We will learn basic statistical concepts such as mean, variance, quantiles and hypothesis testing, and basic R programming for data management and analysis. We will work with traditional R's data, frame structure as well as the modern tibbles structure. Prerequisite: Percentages, average, powers, exponential, linear equation of a line, polynomials.

    STAT0001920 ( Syllabus )

  • STAT4300 - Probability

    Discrete and continuous sample spaces and probability; random variables, distributions, independence; expectation and generating functions; Markov chains and recurrence theory.

    STAT4300910 ( Syllabus )

  • STAT1010 - Intro Business Stat

    Data summaries and descriptive statistics; introduction to a statistical computer package; Probability: distributions, expectation, variance, covariance, portfolios, central limit theorem; statistical inference of univariate data; Statistical inference for bivariate data: inference for intrinsically linear simple regression models. This course will have a business focus, but is not inappropriate for students in the college. This course may be taken concurrently with the prerequisite with instructor permission.

  • STAT1020 - Intro Business Stat

    Continuation of STAT 1010 or STAT 1018. A thorough treatment of multiple regression, model selection, analysis of variance, linear logistic regression; introduction to time series. Business applications. This course may be taken concurrently with the prerequisite with instructor permission.

  • STAT4300 - Probability

    Discrete and continuous sample spaces and probability; random variables, distributions, independence; expectation and generating functions; Markov chains and recurrence theory.
