This course provides a continuation of the statistics knowledge gained in INQ 240, focused for students intending to pursue a degree in the biological sciences, along with an introduction to calculus and mathematical modeling. Students will learn how to apply appropriate models and statistical tests to a variety of situations and will learn how to research other modes and tests out there to apply to their own research in the future. A focus of the course is using real data from past work done by the biology faculty and students and on reading and understanding the models and statistics found in biological journals.
