## STATS 101: Data Science 101

This course will provide a hands-on introduction to statistics and data science. Students will engage with fundamental ideas in inferential and computational thinking. Each week consists of three lectures and two labs, in which students will manipulate real-world data and learn about statistical and computational tools. Topics covered include introductions to data visualization techniques, summary statistics, regression, prediction, sampling variability, statistical testing, inference, and replicability. The objectives of this course are to have students (1) be able to connect data to underlying phenomena and think critically about conclusions drawn from data analysis, and (2) be knowledgeable about how to carry out their own data analysis later. Some statistical background or programming experience is helpful, but not required. The class will start with a brief introduction to R but will move at a relatively fast pace. Freshmen and sophomores interested in data science, computing, and statistics are encouraged to attend. Also open to graduate students.
