Abstract

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.
