EART 125

If you like data science, or thinking about it as a possible career, you might be interested in EART125: Statistics and Data Analysis in the Earth Sciences. Yes, the examples used are from Earth science and the class doesn't cover the machine learning or neural network things you can get in CS, but it covers many of the fundamental statistical methods used by data scientists. These include linear and logistic regression, correlation, multiple regression, maximum likelihood estimation, etc. The course structure is very practical and hands-on, and involves coding with R. The syllabus is attached, so check it out to see how the class works and what's included.


There is open space in the class now, but if you need a permission code or have questions, please email the instructor, Matthew Clapham, at mclapham@ucsc.edu.125_draft_syllabus_2019.pdf
