STATS 50: Mathematics of Sports (MCS 100)
This course will teach you how statistics and probability can be applied in sports, in order to evaluate team and individual performance, build optimal ingame 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 databased 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 101: Data Science 101
http://web.stanford.edu/class/stats101/ . This course will provide a handson introduction to statistics and data science. Students will engage with the fundamental ideas in inferential and computational thinking. Each week, we will explore a core topic comprising three lectures and two labs (a module), in which students will manipulate realworld data and learn about statistical and computational tools. Students will engage in statistical computing and visualization with current data analytic software (Jupyter, R). The objectives of this course are to have students (1) be able to connect data to underlying phenomena and to think critically about conclusions drawn from data analysis, and (2) be knowledgeable about programming abstractions so that they can later design their own computational inferential procedures. No programming or statistical background is assumed. Freshmen and sophomores interested in data science, computing and statistics are encouraged to attend. Open to graduates as well.

STATS 195: Introduction to R (CME 195)
This short course runs for four weeks and is offered in fall and spring. It is recommended for students who want to use R in statistics, science or engineering courses, and for students who want to learn the basics of data science with R. The goal of the short course is to familiarize students with some of the most important R tools for data analysis. Lectures will focus on learning by example and assignments will be applicationdriven. No prior programming experience is assumed.
