"Introducing Math Majors to Statistics"
with Beth Chance & Allan Rossman, Cal Poly - San Luis Obispo

2:30 to 3:00 pm Eastern time, April 8th, 2008 (Note special time)

Math majors, and other mathematically inclined students, have typically been introduced to statistics through courses in probability and mathematical statistics. We worry that such a course sequence presents mathematical aspects of statistics without emphasizing applications and the larger reasoning process of statistical investigations. In this webinar we describe and discuss a data-centered course that we have developed for mathematically inclined undergraduates.
