In the first week, we will get to know one another and take a first glance at what we think 'science' is.
We will also be introduced to the major types of descriptive statistics. We will collect and describe some data and learn how to enter data in Microsoft Excel.
In week 2, we will begin our investigation of the historical development of the theory of evolution. We will also spend time discussing how to evaluate what Ronald Giere calls theoretical hypotheses. We will review the major types of descriptive statistics and begin a study of probability.
