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 but can't get away with math either. We will mention some of the matematics behind the statistical techniques that we cover, and the main emphasis will be to understand the math well, and implement the techniques using the tools provided.
