Title: Statistical Modeling as an Introductory Course
Author(s): Daniel Kaplan*+
Companies: Macalester College
Address: Math and Computer Science, St Paul, MN, 55105, United States
Keywords: education ; modeling ; undergraduate ; regression ; ANOVA
Abstract:

We have developed a new introductory statistics course oriented to undergraduates in biology and social sciences. The course is based on the construction and interpretation of statistical models; it emphasizes multivariate techniques such as multiway ANOVA and multiple regression, including logistic regression. These techniques are made accessible to undergraduates by using a straightforward geometric interpretation of regression and ANOVA. The mathematical prerequisite is a single introductory calculus course that, unlike the traditional Calc I, teaches multivariate topics oriented toward modeling and statistics. The response of students has been extremely positive as the modeling approach enables them to address complicated and realistic questions using the statistical skills they gain in the course.
