MATH-006 Statistics with Exploratory Data Analysis
No faculty information available
The primary objective of this beginning course in statistics is to have students learn and understand statistical concepts without being overwhelmed by cumbersome formulae and computations. The emphasis will be on data exploration and graphical techniques. Topics to be covered will include descriptive statistics, measures of center and spread, linear regression, probability theory, sampling, random variables and probability distributions. Uniform, discrete, binomial, normal, t and chi-square distributions will be among those used to introduce statistical inference, including estimation and hypothesis testing. Considerable use will be made of video tapes and computers. All classes will be held in the computer lab where the statistical software MINITAB will be taught and used to simplify computation and enhance graphical presentations. A computer tutorial will also be used. Minimum computer ability is recommended (but not required). This course is regarded as a core course (or SONY core course, as appropriate) for completion of the math/science requirement in the College. Fall and Spring.
