|Robin asks the perennial question...|
The agenda for this Stat Chat is as follows:
- 6:00 - 6:30, Dinner
- 6:30 - 7:00, Journal Club: Situation Normal --- from Alex Bellos's book, Here's Looking at Euclid (Sharon Mosgrove)
- 7:00 - 8:00, Main Event: Starting Inference with Bootstraps and Randomizations (Robin Lock)
Computer-intensive methods such as bootstrapping and randomization tests provide a way to introduce students to fundamental ideas of statistical inference that require relatively few prerequisites. I'll discuss an ongoing project to revamp an introductory course to use such methods as the starting point for inference.
PLEASE RSVP to Danny Kaplan so that we can plan sensibly for dinner. As always, last-minute deciders and guests are welcome.
