An introduction to modern statistics designed to provide the student with a solid
foundation in statistical concepts, reasoning and applications. Emphasis is given to problem identification,
methodology selection and interpretation of results. Analysis of data accomplished by extensive use of
statistical computer software, thereby minimizing manual computation. Coverage includes descriptive
statistics, probability models, estimation, hypothesis testing, design of experiments and analysis of
variance (ANOVA), linear regression and correlation.
Goals and Objectives:
Student Learning - Quantitative Reasoning is the ability to systematically analyze
quantitative concepts, evidence, processes, and outcomes to reach a rational conclusion.
High School level algebra is recommended.
This course is taught as a traditional lecture.

The final grades will be assigned based on the following criteria:
A = [90, 100], B = [80, 90), C = [70, 80),
D = [60, 70), F= [0, 60).
