Data Collection

  • This program focuses on the teamwork required to produce a successful mission and the importance of statistics in project design and management. Using the video and a hands-on lesson, students learn about statistical analysis and how people use statistics, such as mean, median, mode and range, to make decisions. Members of the Penske Racing Team and engineers from Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne help students investigate the relationship between work, energy and power as they look at race car design, the space shuttle and the International Space Station.

  • The Student Dust Counter is an instrument aboard the NASA New Horizons mission to Pluto, launched in 2006. As it travels to Pluto and beyond, SDC will provide information on the dust that strikes the spacecraft during its 14-year journey across the solar system. These observations will advance our understanding of the origin and evolution of our own solar system, as well as help scientists study planet formation in dust disks around other stars.

    In this lesson, students explore the SDC data interface to establish any trends in the dust distribution in the solar system. Students record the number of dust particles, "hits," recorded by the instrument and the average mass of the particles in a given region.

  • This course covers methodology, major software tools and applications in data mining. By introducing principal ideas in statistical learning, the course will help students to understand conceptual underpinnings of methods in data mining. It focuses more on usage of existing software packages (mainly in R) than developing the algorithms by the students. The topics include statistical learning; resampling methods; linear regression; variable selection; regression shrinkage; dimension reduction; non-linear methods; logistic regression, discriminant analysis; nearest-neighbors; decision trees; bagging; boosting; support vector machines; principal components analysis; clustering. Perfect for students and teachers wanting to learn/acquire materials for this topic.

  • The emphasis in this course will be understanding statistical testing and estimation in the context of "omics" data so that you can appropriately design and analyze a high-throughput study. Since the measurement technologies are evolving rapidly, important objectives of the course are for students to gain a basic understanding of statistical principles and familiarity with flexible software tools so that you can continue to assess and use new statistical methodology as it is developed for new types of data.

    By the end of the course, you should be able to tailor the analysis of your data to your needs while maintaining statistical validity.  You should come out of the course with insight so that you can assess the validity of new statistical methodologies as they are introduced as well as understand appropriate statistical analyses for data types not discussed in the class. 

    Perfect for students and teachers wanting to learn/acquire materials for this topic.
