Beginning statistical theory and practice are introduced through topics of data collection, sampling techniques, organization and presentation of data, measurement of central tendency, probability concepts, statistical estimation, hypothesis testing, correlation analysis, linear regression and analysis of variance. There will also be some time devoted to symmetry and examples of mathematical precision and beauty in God's Creation.
