Our class meets on one of these four schedules (depending on your section) in UTC 1.102:
The objective of this course is for you to gain the tools you need to tackle real-world problems from a quantitative perspective. We will be covering topics on regression modelling, causal inference, and predictive modelling. You will have the opportunity to be exposed to an array of different real-world examples, get hands-on experience in working with data, and improve your R coding skills for data science.
Your success in this class is important to me, and my goal is for you to learn everything you were hoping to learn in this class. I have accommodations in place to allow you to complete the requirements of this course, but if you feel you need additional accommodations, please reach out.
If you feel you are falling behind or that there are any aspects of this class that are preventing you from learning, reach out to me or a teaching assistant as soon as possible, so we can work something out. We also encourage you to reach out to the student resources available through UT, many of which are listed on this syllabus.
The Syllabus has important information, so please check out the different sections. To help you out retain the most important points of this document, here’s the summarized version of the main highlights:
There are different assignments to be completed in this class, including homework assignments, Just In Time Teaching assignments, a take-home midterm, final exam, and a final project. Additionnally, part of your grade will depend on participation.
