## STATS 202: Data Mining and Analysis

Data mining is used to discover patterns and relationships in data. Emphasis is on large complex data sets such as those in very large databases or through web mining. Topics: decision trees, association rules, clustering, case based methods, and data visualization. Prereqs: Introductory courses in statistics or probability (e.g.,
Stats 60), linear algebra (e.g.,

## STATS 216V: Introduction to Statistical Learning

Overview of supervised learning, with a focus on regression and classification methods. Syllabus includes: linear and polynomial regression, logistic regression and linear discriminant analysis; cross-validation and the bootstrap, model selection and regularization methods (ridge and lasso); nonlinear models, splines and generalized additive models; tree-based methods, random forests and boosting; support-vector machines; Some unsupervised learning: principal components and clustering (k-means and hierarchical). Computing is done in R, through tutorial sessions and homework assignments. This math-light course is offered remotely only via video segments (MOOC style). TAs will host remote weekly office hours using an online platform such as Zoom. There are four homework assignments, a midterm, and a final exam, all of which are administered remotely. Prereqs: Introductory courses in statistics or probability (e.g.,
Stats 60 or
Stats 101), linear algebra (e.g.,
Math 51), and computer programming (e.g.,
CS 105). May not be taken for credit by students with credit in
