# Course Description for Statistics 101-103, Introduction to Statistics

Each of these courses gives a basic introduction to statistics,
requiring no mathematics beyond high school algebra. Topics include
numerical and graphical summaries of data, probability, hypothesis
testing, confidence intervals, and regression. Each course focuses
on applications to a particular field of study and is taught jointly
by two instructors, one specializing in statistics and the other in the
relevant area of application. The Tuesday lecture, which introduces general
concepts and methods of statistics, is attended by all students in
Statistics 101-103 together. The course separates for Thursday lectures,
which develop the concepts with examples and applications. Computers are
used for data analysis.
