*Make arrangements for these exam dates early!* **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 Probability 6 Statistical Inferences 5 Regression 4 Design of Experiments 6 Other time permitting

Prerequisite: MATH 122 or equivalent **Text Book**- Douglas C. Montgomery and George C. Runger (1999). Applied Statistics and Probability for Engineers. Second Edition. Wiley.
**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.
