Charles Czajka, Utah Valley University
Joshua Premo, Utah Valley University

The goal of this workshop is to develop participants' conceptual understanding of basic quantitative theory/educational statistics and apply this understanding to the meaning and potential impact of quantitative work in the Geosciences. No background in statistics is assumed in the workshop and all individuals seeking to develop foundational quantitative skills are welcome! Participants will leave the workshop with an understanding of the benefits and limitations of quantitative approaches, how to apply basic statistical tests to their research, and tips for assessing the quality of quantitative analyses.
