In your career, you will often face situations in which a clear understanding of statistical thinking and methodology will be essential. I have designed the course to: 1. Introduce the basic concepts and methods of statistics, 2. Demonstrate the applications of statistics in business decision making, 3. Enable you to perform statistical analyses using appropriate software, and 4. Help you to become a wise consumer of statistical analyses performed by others. College of Business Learning Objectives This course contributes to the College of Business Learning Objectives in the following way: Learning Objective BUS 215 Activity Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making Throughout the course, you will learn how to think critically about business problems and how to apply standard statistical methods to solving business problems and to improving business decision making. Textbook and Computer Software The textbook is Applied Statistics in Business and Economics , second edition, Doane and Seward, McGraw-Hill (2009). IMPORTANT: I have ordered a custom version of this textbook packaged with ALEKS and Homework Manager access codes through the campus bookstore. I strongly advise you to save money by purchasing this package rather than purchasing the book and access codes separately. We will use Microsoft Excel 2007 and Statistix for Windows 9.0 , which are available in every SINC site.
