Statistics 111
Probability and Statistical Inference
Lab assignments
Getting Started
This course uses the Matlab
statistical package. You can purchase Matlab for your personal computer
or you may use it for free at
computer clusters around the university.
Computer Labs
Each week we shall have a computer
lab to explore different methods of data analysis. The links below
go to each lab.
Advice
for being efficient in labs:
The first time you use a generic
data analysis tool (e.g., a histogram or regression), the lab instructions will
include the relevant Matlab commands for using that tool. Subsequent labs
will use data analysis tools from previous labs, but instructions will not be
repeated. I recommend that you maintain a list of Matlab commands for each
analysis, adding to it after each lab that you complete. That way, you have a
handy reference sheet available, which will save you time
when doing the labs or projects for other classes.
