Intro:
The use of probability models and statistical methods for data analysis has
become common practice in virtually all scientific disciplines. This course provides an
introduction to the theory and practice of probability and statistics emphasizing their
language, essential ideas, and concepts. We will discuss the foundations of probability
theory, basic description statistics, graphical representation of data, point and interval
estimation, hypothesis testing, correlation and regression analyses. Working with a
statistical package MINITAB will give you an opportunity to see how the concepts
discussed in the class are applied to the real data sets.
Required textbook:
•
Navidi, William (2007)
Statistics for Engineers and Scientists,
2
nd
ed., McGraw
Hill.
Required statistical package:
•
MINITAB – available in the Math Center (AB610) free of charge. You can borrow
it for $30 per 5 month at
www.minitab.com
. The package will be required for
selected homeworks.
Required scientific calculator:
•
A calculator that will add, subtract, multiply, divide, compute factorials, and
raise numbers to powers is required for the course. You
do not
need builtin
statistical functions. The Math Center might be able to provide you with a
calculator if you do not own and do not want to buy one.
Tentative list of topics:
•
Probability experiments
•
Random events, sample spaces
•
Random variables, discrete and continuous distributions
