Course Objectives

The main goal of the course is to help students obtain the skills necessary to successfully complete an artifact analysis project similar to what is required in the Anthropology 456 (laboratory analysis) class. This requires the abilities to 1) use various computer applications to manage data, 2) to properly use statistical and graphical methods for data presentation and analysis, and 3) to describe clearly both the data itself and the results of quantitative analyses.
