Course Description

Statistics is directed toward majors in the Schools of Nursing and Health Sciences, Communications and Information Systems, Education and Social Sciences and some majors in Mathematics and Science. This course is designed to give students the statistical tools needed to make decisions and interpret results based on sample data. Grouped and ungrouped data will be analyzed through descriptive statistics, including: frequency distributions, measures of central tendency, and measures of dispersion. Techniques for the presentation and interpretation of results will include bar graphs, histograms, frequency and relative frequency tables. Basic concepts of probability theory are briefly examined. Various distributions of sample data including: binomial, normal and uniform distributions are explored. Statistical inference will include detailed discussion of confidence interval estimation and hypothesis testing including problems involving proportions and means of both one and two populations, and large and small samples. The last part of the course will cover correlation and regression. Interpretation of results will be emphasized. Technologies used may include Excel and the TI 83/84 calculator.

Prerequisite: MATH1010, MATH1020, MATH1050, or MATH2040 3 Credits
