The course covers
basic descriptive statistics, probability, hypothesis testing, correlation and

the concepts presented to draw statistically valid conclusions from data and solve
statistical problems. Students perform a
small statistical experiment, collecting and analyzing data and preparing a
short presentation as part of the course.
Upon completion students will understand the application of normal
distribution statistics and Studentt distribution for small samples and be
able to draw inferences to test hypotheses.

Assignments:
Students are expected to spend between two and three hours outside of class for each class hour (six to nine hours of outside of class study per week) working on assignments or on their own initiative to learn the body of knowledge and practice that forms the content of the course.
