General Course Information This course satisfies General Education Credits in the Mathematical Sciences. Students learn how to summarize data and how to make appropriate decisions based on Course Description STA 2023 is an introductory course that assumes no prior knowledge of statistics but does assume some knowledge of high school algebra. Basic statistical concepts an I Data – which includes graphical and numerical summaries to describe the distribution of a variable, or the relationship between two variables (chapters 1, 2 and II Probability and Inference – using the language of probability and the properties of numerical summaries computed from a random samples (chapters 5 and Course Objective The primary goal of the course is to help students understand how the process of posing a question, collecting data relevant to that question, analyzing data, and interp General Education Objective (Mathematics) Courses in mathematics provide instruction in computational strategies in fundamental mathematics including at least one of the following: solving equations and ine In this course, this objective will be met by . . . During the semester the students will be given an introduction to the three main aspects of statistics: design (of experiments/surveys), description (of data collected) a General Education Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) Content: Students demonstrate competence in the terminology, concepts, methodologies and theories used within the discipline.
