- Why should you take A113?
A113 is the fourth in the Indiana University MMCC (Multi-campus Modular
Computing Curriculum) series of courses. In this course, you will get a
chance to use problem-solving techniques and spreadsheet techniques to
analyze data and derive various inferences from it. You will learn to
find hidden relationships in your data, make sense out of the data and
present drab numeric data in a more attractive and useful way.
- Who should take A113?
Anyone with some basic spreadsheet knowledge can take A113.
You should especially want to take A113 if you are involved
in statistical interpretation of data or any form of analysis.
The course material is not completely introductory, but not
highly advanced either. A113 is not a Math course. We will
mention some of the matematics behind the statistical techniques
that we cover, but the main emphasis is to implement them using
the tools provided.
