In this course, we systematically cover fundamentals of statistical inference and testing, and give an introduction to statistical modeling. The first half of the course will be focused on the fundamentals of statistical inference such as sampling procedures, probability theory, and random variables. In the beginning we also provide a gentle introduction to the R language for statistical computing, which will be used throughout the course to show how theoretical concepts can be applied in practice. In the second half of the course we will deal with the estimation and testing of population characteristics based on sample data. Furthermore, we provide an introduction to statistical modeling via introductory lectures on (generalized) linear regression models and briefly discuss the Bayesian approach to statistics. Throughout the course, real-data examples will be used in lecture discussion and homework problems. This course lays the foundation, preparing students for other courses in machine learning, data mining, and visualization.
