STATS 208: Introduction to the Bootstrap
The bootstrap is a computerbased method for assigning measures of accuracy to statistical estimates. By substituting computation in place of mathematical formulas, it permits the statistical analysis of complicated estimators. Topics: nonparametric assessment of standard errors, biases, and confidence intervals; related resampling methods including the jackknife, crossvalidation, and permutation tests. Theory and applications. Prerequisite: course in statistics or probability.

STATS 216: 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;crossvalidation and the bootstrap, model selection and regularization methods (ridge and lasso); nonlinear models, splines and generalized additive models; treebased methods, random forests and boosting; supportvector machines; Some unsupervised learning: principal components and clustering (kmeans and hierarchical). Computing is done in R, through tutorial sessions and homework assignments. This mathlight course is offered via video segments (MOOC style), and inclass problem solving sessions. 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).
