MAT-1140 Introduction to Statistics
This is an introductory course in statistics intended for students in a wide variety of areas of study. Topics discussed include displaying and describing data, probability, binomial and normal distributions, confidence intervals, hypothesis tests, and regression and correlation.
Prerequisite(s): Math placement score or C or higher in MAT-0092 or MAT-0104 or concurrent enrollment in MAT0114C.
Corequisite(s): MAT 0114C - Principles of Introduction to Statistics.
Based on Placement Score.
- Interpret quantitative data using graphs and descriptive statistics with emphasis on histograms and boxplots.
- Compute measures of expectation and variation for a discrete probability distribution.
- Compute probability for a binomial and normal distribution.
- Perform calculations to estimate parameters using confidence intervals based on the normal distribution and t-distribution.
- Perform hypotheses testing involving a sample mean, proportion, and standard deviation/variance.
- Perform hypotheses testing involving two sample means (independent and dependent), two population proportions, and two standard deviations/variances.
- Construct linear regression models and correlation coefficients from datasets.
