In this introduction to descriptive and inferential statistics, students learn aboutpresentation of data, measures of centraltendency and dispersion, the binomial and normalprobability distributions, sampling techniques,correlation and regression, and hypothesis testing(z-test, t-test, chi-squared). Examples are selected from education, business, and the social and natural sciences. This course satisfies the General Education Mathematics requirement. Course Meeting Information This is a fully web based course. We do not meet in person or have any online lectures. Course Learning Outcomes Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: Recognize simple, compound, and complimentary events and assess their probability. Select the correct model and construct the regression line to describe a linear relationship between two quantities. Describe the center, variation, and outliers in a data set using the median, quartiles, mean, standard deviation, and z-score. Solve problems involving the normal distribution. Construct a confidence interval to estimate a population mean or proportion and interpret the results.
Use the P-value to evaluate the results and make a conclusion in a statistical test of hypothesis. General Education Core Competencies 4: Develop quantitative reasoning skills to solve a problem. 5: Demonstrate analytical, problem-solving, and evaluation skills. 6: Utilize technology in making decisions and gathering information, and in communication.
