This website supports the courses of Dr. John Rasp, Associate Professor in the
School of Business Administration at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida.
I am teaching four classes during the Fall Semester of 2013.
- A First-Year Seminar. These are writing-intensive courses for
incoming first year students, organized around topics of special interest. My
First-Year Seminar is entitled "Virtual Worlds and the Real One."
The course will use massively-multiplayer online (MMO) computer gaming as a
lens for exploring a wide range of social issues.
- Two sections of STAT 201, "Introduction to Business
Statistics." This is a half-unit course that introduces foundational
statistical concepts. It is intended to prepare students to take STAT 301.
- One section of STAT 460, "Experimental Design and Advanced
Data Analysis." This course is part of the Applied Statistics minor.
It covers advances topics in statistical inference (including use of appropriate
statistical tools, reference distributions, power analysis, and robustness), as well
as Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). The class is taught roughly at the level of a
graduate statistics service course.
