課程概述

This course is not restricted to students of entomology. Students from any departments can take this course. If unable to register online, please contact the instructor or simply show up to the first class. This course has two parts: 1) experimental design and 2) data analysis. The experimental design part of the course will use a textbook (Ruxton and Colegrave 2016; see below). The main theme of the data analysis part is the method of maximum likelihood although other approaches are also discussed. Computer simulations will be used to understand the concepts of various statistical tests, but no prior experience in programming is required. Although the course title contains the word 'ecology', this is a general course on experimental design and data analysis. Students of any fields (social science, political science, physical science, biological science, business, engineering, etc.) can take the course. No knowledge of ecology is required. The computer language R (http://www.r-project.org/) is used. Expectations

  • Ask questions, in or out of class, when you don’t understand something. If you are confused, you are probably not the only one.
  • Assignments will be given nearly every week. Students must work on assignments on their own.
  • Some information regarding the course (R scripts, optional readings, etc.) will be sent by email. Students are responsible for checking their NTU email accounts regularly. Bonus points TBA Schedule The schedule (shown in the content section of this website) is subject to change. 

  • 課程目標
    Students completing this course will:
  • understand how typical statistical tests work.
  • be able to program in R.
  • be familiar with common statistical models (e.g., generalized linear [mixed] models) and methods.
  • be able to build own statistical models when common models are not appropriate.
