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. Graphing calculators will be used to gain a greater understanding of the underlying concepts.
