Psychology 201: Introduction to Statistics
www.mtholyoke.edu/courses/cmorrow/psych201


Introduction

Course Description:
Welcome to the world of statistics! This course is a gateway to research in psychology and other social sciences. Most of you have indicated interest in pursuing some aspect of the wide, wide world of psychology. One of the things that ties together the diverse set of activities in this field is the toolkit called statistics. As with any toolkit, it is useless unless you know how to use it, and the only way to learn to use it is through hands-on experiences. During this semester you will be guided through information, homework, and labs designed to help you become a knowledgeable, proficient, and appropriate user of this toolkit. In other words, we want you to “own” your tools.
