**Basic Practice of Statistics for Social Science**

**(4 Credits)**

*Typically offered*SpringWe are inundated by data, but data alone do not translate into useful information. Statistics provides the means for organizing, summarizing, and therefore better analyzing data so that we can understand what the data tell us about critical questions. If one collects data then understanding how to use statistical methods is critical, but it is also necessary to understand and interpret all the information we consume on a daily basis. This course provides these basic statistical approaches and techniques. This course may not be acceptable as a substitute for any other Probability and Statistics course.

**Chaos and Dynamical Systems**

**(4 Credits)**

*Typically offered*SpringTopics will include dynamics of maps and of first order and second-order differential equations, stability, bifurcations, limit cycles, dissection of systems with fast and slow time scales. Geometric viewpoint, including phase planes, will be stressed.
