GenEd: FSAR
Prerequisite: MATH113 or MATH115.
Credit only granted for: BIOM301, BMGT230, CCJS200, ECON321, EDMS451, GEOG306, GVPT422, PSYC200, or SOCY201.
Descriptive statistics, introduction to probability, sampling, confidence interval estimation, hypothesis testing, simple regression and correlation. Emphasis on simple applications of statistical techniques and interpretation of statistical results.
BIOM405
(Perm Req)
Computer Applications in Biometrics
Credits: 1
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
An introduction to computer applications for data analysis. This is equivalent to the computer lab of 601 and is required for students that have taken BIOM 301 and BIOM402 and wish to go directly into BIOM602.
BIOM601
Biostatistics I
Credits: 4
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Prerequisite: BIOM301 or STAT464; or students who have taken courses with comparable content may contact the department.
Credit only granted for: BIOM401 or BIOM601.
Estimation and hypothesis testing, t tests, one and two way analysis of variance, regression, analysis of frequency data. Lecture will emphasize uses and limitations of these methods in biology, while the laboratory will emphasize the use of statistical analysis software for the analysis of biological data.
