## 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.
Terms: Aut, Spr | Units: 1

## STATS 60:Introduction to Statistical Methods: Precalculus (PSYCH 10, STATS 160)

Techniques for organizing data, computing, and interpreting measures of central tendency, variability, and association. Estimation, confidence intervals, tests of hypotheses, t-tests, correlation, and regression. Possible topics: analysis of variance and chi-square tests, computer statistical packages.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 5 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-Math, WAY-AQR, WAY-FR

## 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 110:Statistical Methods in Engineering and the Physical Sciences

Introduction to statistics for engineers and physical scientists. Topics: descriptive statistics, probability, interval estimation, tests of hypotheses, nonparametric methods, linear regression, analysis of variance, elementary experimental design. Prerequisite: one year of calculus. Please note that students must enroll in one section in addition to the main lecture.
Terms: Aut | Units: 5 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-Math, WAY-AQR, WAY-FR

## 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. Undergraduate students enroll for 5 units, graduate students enroll for 4 units. Undergraduate students must enroll in one section in addition to the main lecture. Sections are optional for graduate students. Note: Autumn 2023-24 is the last time this course will be offered. It will be replaced by STATS 117 and STATS 118 in 2024-25.

## STATS 117:Theory of Probability I

Introduction to probability theory, including probability axioms, conditional probability, independence, random variables, and expectation. Joint, marginal, and conditional distributions. Discrete models (binomial, hypergeometric, Poisson) and continuous models (normal, exponential). Prerequisites: Single-variable calculus including infinite series (e.g., MATH 21) and at least one MATH course at Stanford. May not be taken for credit by students with credit in STATS 116, CS 109, MATH 151, or MS&E 120.
Terms: Spr, Sum | Units: 3
Instructors: Kim, G. (PI)

## STATS 118:Theory of Probability II

Continuation of STATS 117, with a focus on probability topics useful for statistics. Sampling distributions of sums, means, variances, and order statistics of random variables. Convolutions, moment generating functions, and limit theorems. Probability distributions useful in statistics (gamma, beta, chi-square, t, multivariate normal). Prerequisites: a calculus-based first course in probability (such as STATS 117, CS 109, or MS&E 120) and multivariable calculus, including multiple integrals ( MATH 52 or equivalent, can be taken concurrently). May not be taken for credit by students with credit in STATS 116.
Terms: Sum | Units: 4
Instructors: Hwang, J. (PI)

## STATS 141:Biostatistics (BIO 141)

Introductory statistical methods for biological data: describing data (numerical and graphical summaries); introduction to probability; and statistical inference (hypothesis tests and confidence intervals). Intermediate statistical methods: comparing groups (analysis of variance); analyzing associations (linear and logistic regression); and methods for categorical data (contingency tables and odds ratio). Course content integrated with statistical computing in R.
Terms: Win | Units: 5 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-Math, WAY-AQR

## STATS 160:Introduction to Statistical Methods: Precalculus (PSYCH 10, STATS 60)

Techniques for organizing data, computing, and interpreting measures of central tendency, variability, and association. Estimation, confidence intervals, tests of hypotheses, t-tests, correlation, and regression. Possible topics: analysis of variance and chi-square tests, computer statistical packages.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 5

## STATS 191:Introduction to Applied Statistics

Statistical tools for modern data analysis. Topics include regression and prediction, elements of the analysis of variance, bootstrap, and cross-validation. Emphasis is on conceptual rather than theoretical understanding. Applications to social/biological sciences. Student assignments/projects require use of the software package R. Prerequisite: introductory statistical methods course. Recommended: 60, 110, or 141.
