ITHACA, NY – Officials announced Tuesday that they plan to offer a different, individualized class in statistics for each of nearly 80 majors at the university. “Statistics is a diverse and important subject with applications in many fields,” said Dean of Students Kent Hubbell, who plans to teach ENGL 3100: Statistics for English Majors with Applications in Page Numbers. “It’s unreasonable to make a students choose between AEM 2100, ILRST 2100, PAM 2100, ENGRD 2700, CEE 3040, and ECE 3100, among others. What is a human ecology major supposed to do with a basic understanding of probability and distributions gained in an ILR class? The math simply doesn’t translate.” At press time, many students had expressed interest in taking Statistics for Undecided Majors.
