MATH 1501 Statistics
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

This course uses abstract representation (the production and interpretation of information using mathematical models such as formulas, graphs, tables, and schematics) and empirical analysis (the use of statistical inference, e.g., statistical modeling through sampling of populations or phenomena) to analyze data and draw statistically valid conclusions from that data.

You will find that Statistics is not like the traditional math courses you have taken previously. Statistics is a science – the science of obtaining and interpreting data and numbers. You should approach this course as you do a science course instead of a math course. Analyzing and interpreting data is a skill. We will look at three distinct areas of statistics: producing data, analyzing data, and making inferences from data. Even though we will study all three areas, the emphasis will be on data analysis and inferential statistics.

PHYS 1040: The Making of the Atomic Bomb

Rating
0.0 stars

This course will discuss the history of the development of the atomic bomb. Number of scientific breakthroughs in atomic and nuclear physics during 19-th and the first part of 20-th centuries led to possibility of the making of the atomic bomb. We also discuss the political context in which the bomb was developed, and personal stories of the leading scientist involved and corresponding moral issues arising from the development and use of the bomb. There is no development in modern history that has had more impact on man’s scientific, political, and moral consciousness than the making of the atomic bomb and its use against the Japanese at the end of WWII. It is a singularity of such power that its ultimate consequences for humanity are still beyond our perception. This course attempts to tell the story primarily from the point of view of the history of the science involved. Also the students will see the need for the integrated perspective in order to understand how science, political history, ethical values and personal motivations are interconnected in this story. To understand this story is to understand the complexities and responsibilities that have accompanied the emergence of modern society.
