課程概述

This course is about conducting experiments and analyzing data in a broad sense. The emphasis may be on ecology, but the materials covered in the course are general and are useful for any disciplines. The course consists of two parts: (1) experimental design and (2) data analysis. In the experimental design part, we will discuss some of the common pitfalls in experimental designs. In the data analysis part of the course, we will cover several statistical methods which allows students to develop their own models without being restricted by the assumptions of commonly used statistical models. The computer language R (http://www.r-project.org/) will be used. Expectations

  • Attend and participate in class; do the reading and all the assignments. Two unexcused absences will make the class participation portion of your grade 0. Make your absence arrangement before the class if possible.
  • Ask questions, in or out of class, when you don’t understand something. There is no such thing as a stupid question, and if you’re confused you’re probably not the only one. Policies
  • Submit your assignments on time. You will be asked to submit most of the assignments in class via CEIBA (this web site). Late assignments will be penalized: one day (20% penalization), two days (30% penalization), and three days or more (100% penalization).
  • In this course, you are allowed to discuss the assigned problems with other students in your class. However, you must write the solutions in your own words without referring to any other students' work. The copying or even paraphrasing of anyone's solutions will be considered academic dishonesty. Assessment Class participation (including [pop] quizzes) (20%) Exams (40%) Assignments (40%)
