STAT 344
Statistical Design of Experiments Fall 2022
Division III Quantative/Formal Reasoning

Class Details

When you hear the word experiment you might be picturing white lab coats and pipettes, but businesses, especially e-commerce, are constantly experimenting as well. How do you get the most out of both scientific and business investigations? By doing the right experiment in the first place. We’ll explore the techniques used to plan experiments that are both efficient and statistically sound. We’ll learn how to analyze the data that come from these experiments and the conclusions we can draw from that analysis. We’ll look at both classical tools like fractional factorial designs as well as optimal design, and see how these two frameworks differ in their philosophy and in what they can do. Throughout the course, we’ll make extensive use of both R and JMP software to work with real-world data.
