Abstract: 

This paper describes three courses that could be taught by statisticians in departments of mathematics. These courses have three features in common: (1) they are serious about data and contemporary applications of statistics, (2) they are mathematical enough to count towards a major in mathematics, and (3) they are accessible to sophomore math majors or first-year students with advanced standing.
