• Intro to Statistics Syllabus

     

    Description:  This course begins with descriptive statistics, including graphical representations of data and measures of central tendency, position and variation.  Basic probability concepts lead to the study of the binomial and normal probability distributions.  The course continues with the Central Limit  Theorem and its use in the development of estimation through confidence intervals and hypothesis testing. The course concludes with Chi Square tests and linear correlation and regression.  Graphing calculators will be used to gain a greater understanding of the underlying concepts.
