Anthropology 418: Anthropological Statistics provides Anthropology students having minimal mathematics/statistics background the conceptual and methodological skills to understand and use quantitative techniques and statistical software in anthropological-archaeological research. The course stresses practical application of statistical analysis in research, rather than theory and mathematical derivation of statistical formulae. Using a hands-on approach, students will learn to: 1) identify the kinds of anthropological questions that can be addressed quantitatively, 2) acquire the knowledge necessary for informed, critical reading of quantitative anthropological literature, and 3) design research and collect data that can be productively analyzed using quantitative methods.
