MAT 313 Experimental Design

A well-designed experiment is an efficient way of learning about the world.  Experiments are performed in all branches of science, engineering and industry. Problems of increasing size and complexity have led to the development of many new methods for designing and analyzing experiments. This course develops concepts and practices for designing and conducting experiments, along with analyzing experimental results.  Topics include randomization, replication, blocking, factorial design, ANOVA, surveys, etc.  Students will develop a research question, design an experiment, and collect and analyze the data in a course project to help students use their understanding of experimental design in a practical manner.
