Course Description

This is an introduction to the mathematical basis of statistics. It is designed for doctoral students in the health sciences, e.g., epidemiology or industrial hygiene, who will need to use statistical methods in their research. The course covers the mathematical foundations of probability distributions, estimation, and hypothesis testing. A previous course in differential and integral calculus is required, but little memory of calculus is expected. After completing this course, students will have a better understanding of fundamental statistical concepts and be more comfortable applying familiar statistical methods and interpreting results.
