Course MATH 226 02: HNRS: Intro to Statistical Modeling


Virginia Wesleyan College students are taking part in the "Moving Towards a Sustainable Campus: Design of a Green Roof Monitoring Experiment," funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. We our conducting a preliminary micro scale study of drainage treatments and storm water runoff. Our part of the study entails compiling, analyzing, and interpreting the results of the chemical analysis from the drainage treatments and storm water runoff. Through this experience we have learned to prepare data files for statistical analysis and to use advanced statistical methods.
