2 1. Course Description ADM2304 is an introduction to the conceptual, intuitive, and computational basis of statistical data analysis, with emphasis on applications to business, public and non-profit sector problems. It provides the fundamental tools for thinking critically about problems with words, numbers and graphs. Topics include estimation and hypothesis testing (including nonparametric methods), chi- square methods for categorical data, one- and two-way analyses of variance, and simple and multiple regression modelling. ADM 2304 provides the necessary background for more advanced quantitative courses in business simulation (ADM 3305), data mining (ADM 3308), market research (ADM 3323), econometrics (ECO3151), multivariate methods (ADM 4306), and business and technology forecasting (ADM 4307). Learning Objectives for this Course The primary learning objective is: LG2 ( Demonstrate Critical Thinking and Decision Making Skills). Specific learning objectives include the knowledge and ability to: -recognize the need for statistical analysis in support of decision making in management and business; -understand the capabilities and limitations of basic statistical methods; and -select and implement the appropriate statistical tools for analyzing different types of data, using appropriate statistical software as required. 2.
