Section 1 - Introduction to Statistics, Study Design, and Sampling
This handout covers introductory material and types of studies & study design issues.
Types of Studies Powerpoint - This is the Powerpoint presentation I went through on study designs.
Types of Studies (Narrated Lecture) - This is basically the same Powerpoint as above, but is narrated. (OPTIONAL)
Organizing and Displaying Data (Narrated Lecture) - This a narrated lecture that covers data entry, data type, and basic descriptive methods. (OPTIONAL)
Section 2 covers descriptive statistics for categorical variables and discusses the basics of data entry in JMP.
Section 3 covers descriptive statistics for numeric variables.
This section or chapter covers basic probability concepts.
This section covers an application of conditional probabilities and introduces Baye's Rule.
This section introduces the concepts of statistical inference and begins examining inference for a single population proportion.

Section 2 - Data Types
This handout covers types of data/variables.
Section 3 - This handout covers data entry in JMP and methods for describing a single categorical/nominal variable.
Section 4 ~ Summarizing Numeric Data and Comparative Displays. This large handout covers different aspects of summarizing numeric variables and displays used to compare a numeric variable across populations or treatment groups. The las two pages contain an important discussion of how examining relationships between two variables depends on the data type of the two variables involved.
