MATH 1025 - Statistics
Hours/Week: Lecture 4 Lab None
Course Description: This course is an algebra-based statistics course that introduces the basic concepts involved in collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data. Topics include graphs, frequency distributions, measures of central tendency and variation, probability, probability distributions, expected value, sampling distributions, normal distribution, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing for one and two population means and proportions, chi square, linear regression, and correlation. This course includes analysis and interpretation of data using the Minitab software package and using the TI-83/TI-84 calculator. Students are required to have a TI-83 or a TI-84 calculator.
