## STATS 32: Introduction to R for Undergraduates

This short course runs for weeks one through five of the quarter. It is recommended for undergraduate students who want to use R in the humanities or social sciences and for students who want to learn the basics of R programming. The goal of the short course is to familiarize students with R's tools for data analysis. Lectures will be interactive with a focus on learning by example, and assignments will be application-driven. No prior programming experience is needed. Topics covered include basic data structures, File I/O, data transformation and visualization, simple statistical tests, etc, and some useful packages in R. Prerequisite: undergraduate student. Priority given to non-engineering students. Laptops necessary for use in class.

## STATS 100: Mathematics of Sports

This course will teach you how statistics and probability can be applied in sports, in order to evaluate team and individual performance, build optimal in-game strategies and ensure fairness between participants. Topics will include examples drawn from multiple sports such as basketball, baseball, soccer, football and tennis. The course is intended to focus on data-based applications, and will involve computations in R with real data sets via tutorial sessions and homework assignments. Prereqs: No statistical or programming background is assumed, but introductory courses, e.g,
Stats 60,101 or 116, are recommended. A prior knowledge of Linear Algebra (e.g.,
Math 51) and basic probability is strongly recommended.

## STATS 116: Theory of Probability

Probability spaces as models for phenomena with statistical regularity. Discrete spaces (binomial, hypergeometric, Poisson). Continuous spaces (normal, exponential) and densities. Random variables, expectation, independence, conditional probability. Introduction to the laws of large numbers and central limit theorem. Prerequisites:
MATH 52 and familiarity with infinite series, or equivalent.

## STATS 155: Modern Statistics for Modern Biology (BIOS 221, STATS 256, STATS 366)

Application based course in nonparametric statistics. Modern toolbox of visualization and statistical methods for the analysis of data, examples drawn from immunology, microbiology, cancer research and ecology. Methods covered include multivariate methods (PCA and extensions), sparse representations (trees, networks, contingency tables) as well as nonparametric testing (Bootstrap, permutation and Monte Carlo methods). Hands on, use R and cover many Bioconductor packages. Prerequisite: Working knowledge of R and two core Biology courses. Note that the 155 offering is a writing intensive course for undergraduates only and requires instructor consent. (WIM)
