Sample Syllabus

This is a syllabus for a course I could teach on data analysis techniques in the Earth Sciences, inspired by Cornell’s course “Quantitative Data Analysis for the Geosciences”. This is the course I wish I had been able to take at the beginning of my graduate school experience! The course covers basic statistics, curve fitting, and digital signal analysis, at a level appropriate for upper level undergraduates/beginning graduate students. My version of the course features an emphasis of group work and peer evaluation to improve student learning and foster community in the classroom.
