STA 6093 Introduction to Applied Statistics for Agricultural and Life Sciences
This course provides students with a conceptual and practical understanding of the application of statistics in the agricultural and life sciences. This is an online course that will use a combination of lectures, programming demonstrations, data exercises using the programming language R, group activities, and primary literature to teach introductory statistics at the graduate level. This course is NOT a “go at your own pace” course. Each module must be completed in a specific week (see Course learning objectives in Syllabus).
Course format is 100% online. Students watch lectures online and complete assignments, quizzes and finals, all online. Most of the course is about learning the R program language.
- Learn the programming language R
- Familiarize students with the foundations of statistical analysis
- Teach students basic statistical analysis and data management
- Prepare students for advanced statistics courses they will take throughout their graduate career
