Prof. Kruschke’s visit on March 23-24

Prof. John Kruschke of Indiana University gave a talk on March 23 that was very well-attended and thought-provoking, and those of us from Vassar and other area schools who attended the workshop on March 24 were treated to a very useful tutorial in how to use R to actually do Bayesian data analysis!

Stay tuned for a guide to statistics course offerings for fall, 2012!
