**Time:** Tuesday & Thursday, 1:00 - 2:15, plus (optional)
Labs for each Section.

**Course description:**
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 101-106 together. The course separates for
Thursday lectures, which develop the concepts with examples and
applications. Computers are used for data analysis. These courses are
alternatives; they do not form a sequence and only one may be taken
for credit. They do not count toward the natural sciences
requirement.

**Computing:**
Students are expected to learn
Minitab, which is available for use on the computers at the StatLab (140
Prospect St), at Dunham Labs (10 Hillhouse--3 Statlab machines), and
on all the Academic Computing Cluster Windows machines in Dunham, CCL,
Ct Hall, Kline, and the residential colleges. (See map for locations.)
Copies of the full Minitab program, for use on a personal computer,
may be purchased from the
Microcomputer support center for $115. Instructors and TAs will
offer help with Minitab at the StatLab.
