Welcome to Statistics 2! This class covers simple and multiple regression, fundamentals of experimental design, analysis of variance methods, and logistic regression. If time allows, other topics will be selected from the following: Poisson regression, resampling methods, introduction to Bayesian methods, and probability models. This class includes substantial use of statistical software. Prerequisite: AP Statistics.
This class is for students who want to continue on in their study of Statistics without involving Calculus. This is a fairly standard curriculum used by colleges nationwide for students who receive credit for passing the AP Statistics exam (this class has been modeled after such a class at the University of Texas at Austin). After completing this class students should be able to:
