Abstract: What is your understanding of information shared to you
about crime and justice? What role does mathematics have in produc-
ing knowledge for professional and public audiences concerned about
public safety? As an interdisciplinary field, criminal justice builds from
the knowledge of fields such as sociology, psychology, economics,
and more. This seminar will cover the basic mathematics principles
used in criminal justice research designs and analytic plans. The
discussion will connect the applications in criminal justice within the
larger contexts of data measurement, collection, and interpretation.
