STAT 2480.  Elementary Statistical Methods.

Elementary Statistical Methods: An elementary introduction to probability, common probability distributions such as the binomial and Gaussian distributions, exploratory analysis of data, hypothesis testing, confidence intervals, contingency table analysis and chi-square goodness-of-fit, simple linear regression, one-way ANOVA, and Bonferroni correction for multiple comparisons.

STAT 3320.  Probability and Statistics.

Probability and Statistics: By the end of this course, students should be able to read a word problem, realize the uncertainty that is involved in a situation described, select a suitable probability model, estimate and test its parameters on the basis of real data, compute probabilities of interesting events, and make appropriate conclusions. This course covers theory and applications of probability models, random variables, discrete and continuous probability distributions, joint and conditional distributions, sampling distributions, central limit theorem, hypothesis testing, confidence intervals, and exposure to simple linear regression. Time-to-failure probability models are considered. Students may not receive credit for both STAT 3320 and STAT 3330.

STAT 4474.  Statistical Machine Learning.

Statistical Machine Learning: Machine Learning is an interdisciplinary field with joint inputs from statistics, computer science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. This course is intended to cover some commonly-used data mining techniques, with more focus on the mathematical parts- statistical learning algorithms. The materials are arranged in two main categories: unsupervised learning and supervised learning.
