Course Description

An Introduction to the Statistics of Measurements on Chemical Systems: Students in this course will study the characteristics of data that contain random error. Statistics used to describe and summarize trends in measured data will be introduced, as well as a number of statistical tools used to draw meaningful and objective conclusions based on the data.

This course has been designed to teach data analysis for students taking Chemistry 301; this course is a co-requisite, or pre-requisite, of Chemistry 301. However, the couse topics are completely general, and are useful to any scientist who deals with quantitative measurements.
