Course Description
Stat 313 is designed for advanced undergraduates in engineering, physical sciences, life sciences, who will use statistics to solve real problems. It includes comprehensive introduction to modeling data, statistical methods of analyzing data and designing experiments. General objective is to train students in formulating statistical models, in choosing appropriate methods for inference from experimental and observational data and to test the validity of these models. An outline of topics is:
Topics   No of Lectures (+- 1)
Introduction and Data Summary 2

Homework and Project:
HW are assigned regularly. They are due in class, before the class starts, on the due date. Late HW will not be accepted. A project is on analyzing real data of one's interests using the tools learned in classes. Students in teams or individually can start collecting data at the beginning of semester and then present the analyses in a written report and in a short oral presentation at the end of semester.
Grading Policy:
Homework, Midterm Exam, Project and Final Exam scores will be counted 20%, 20%, 20% and 40% towards the final grade.
