CRN: 22109 Instructor: Leigh Lawton This course provides students with a basic understanding of the role of statistics in the gathering of data, the creation of information and its use in decision-making. Students will learn methods for summarizing data, both numerically and graphically, and for drawing conclusions from sample data. Statistical analyses will be carried out using the computer and statistical software. The focus of the course is on how statistical methods can be placed on the design of statistical studies, collection of data, and the interpretation of results (rather than the details of computation). Prerequisite: None

Work environment; population, sampling frame, random sample, type of variables and studies. Descriptive statistics: collecting, displaying, summarizing, and interpreting data to extract information. Probability; relative frequency definition of probability, conditional probability, independence, discrete and continuous random variables, probability distribution and probability density, binomial, normal, standard normal, t, chi-square, and F distributions. Inferential statistics; sampling distribution of the sample mean and sample proportion, central limit theorem, confidence intervals and hypothesis tests for one and two means and one and two proportions. Basic applications: tests of independence, analysis of variance and linear regression. A statistical package must be used as tool.
