Syllabus, EDP 371 Spring, 2010 EDP 371 Introductory Statistics Spring, 2010 Unique Number: 10265 Course Syllabus Course Description: This course is designed to help students learn the introductory descriptive and inferential statistical procedures that are used in behavioral and social science research studies. Students will learn the assumptions underlying, the hypotheses being tested by, and the inferences that can be made with the use of the procedures. These skills will provide the student with a basis to conduct their own such analyses and to evaluate critically others’ uses of statistics.

Students are expected to have basic algebra skills including the ability to solve single variable equations. Students should have a basic understanding of exponents and square roots, as well as the order of operations, proportions, fractions, decimals, percentage, and negative numbers. Pages Appendix A of the textbook contain a review of the basic math skills needed for this course. Calculator: Students are required to bring to class a scientific calculator that can be used to sum, multiply, take the square root and square of numbers. Calculators are recommended for use with class assignments and tests as well as during class time.
