CS 106 - Making Sense of Data with SPSS

(3.00 cr.)

The world is flooded with data, but data by itself is useless. It needs to be gathered, processed, analyzed, visualized, and finally interpreted. This course examines real world data and the tools needed to make sense of it. Students learn what data is, how it is processed, how it can help predict the future, and what ethical dilemmas arise from data analytics. The use of logic in writing data analysis programs is emphasized. Students gain hands-on experience analyzing data with high-level programming, spreadsheets, and SPSS.  Recommended for social science majors. Fulfills one math/science core requirement.

Sessions Typically Offered: Fall/Spring
Years Typically Offered: Annually
