On a Calculus-Based Statistics Course for Life Science Students
Watkins, Joseph C.
CBE - Life Sciences Education, v9 n3 p298-310 Fall 2010
The choice of pedagogy in statistics should take advantage of the quantitative capabilities and scientific background of the students. In this article, we propose a model for a statistics course that assumes student competency in calculus and a broadening knowledge in biology. We illustrate our methods and practices through examples from the curriculum. (Contains 3 tables and 11 figures.)
