STA 164 - (MTH 164) Strategies of Experimentation: Statistical Design and Analysis of Experiments

Course Units: 1
(Spring; Staff) Experimentation is at the heart of the scientific method, both in the physical and social sciences. Not only do experiments validate or disprove existing hypotheses, but often unexpected results lead to the development of new hypotheses and new theoretical understanding. This course will focus on strategies to accelerate the scientific method when experimenting with multiple variables. Specific topics include design options, such as simple comparative experiments, factorials and fractional factorials, and response surface designs, as well as analysis methods such as graphical methods, analysis of variance, and regression models.  Prerequisite(s): STA 104  (MTH 104), STA 128  (MTH 128  ), STA 264 (MTH 264) , MER 301 , ECO 243 , PSY 200  or permission from the Chair, which may be granted to upper class students who have solid backgrounds in calculus, e.g., who have taken MTH 112  .
