This course combines quantitative reasoning and mathematical modeling. Students will model quantitative data to find patterns, make future predictions, measure complex phenomena, and answer big, messy, reality-based questions central to human development, including climate change, social progress, equity, participation and freedom, sustainability, and human security. Students will explore quantitative research methodologies to understand how to choose, apply, interpret, appropriate statistical analysis for practical data problems, and represent the outcome through optimal data visualization methods. This course will also provide students with exposure to data visualization and analysis tools such as Microsoft Excel and Tableau and the statistical package R to model, understand, and critique a wide variety of data.This class is a substitute for Math Models in Nature which is a requirement for IS and ES students.
