Introduction to Quantitative Reasoning II
Building up on POL222H1, this course examines the theoretical foundations of quantitative empirical research, such as probability theory and statistical inference, and introduces students to data analysis using a statistical software package. Students will gain hands-on experience with the analysis of empirical data, which should prove useful not only during the rest of their academic curriculum, but also throughout their career. By the end of the semester, students will be able to conduct basic data analysis independently.
Format and Requirements
Several short worksheets and/or quizzes, one or two tests and a short, original research paper.
