This preview shows page 2 - 4 out of 4 pages.

Calculate and compare the measures of dispersion: variance, standard deviation, range. Understand and interpret a box plot. Calculate and interpret a z-score. Identify outliers. Ch 3 Understand the fundamental definitions of probability. Identify mutually exclusive (disjoint) and/or independent events, and use these to simplify calculations. Apply the basic rules of probability (complements, addition, multiplication, conditional probability) to solve a problem. Calculate probabilities and odds from a contingency table. Apply Bayes’ theorem to solve for an unknown conditional probability. Compare probabilities using relative risk and odds ratios. Calculate a rate.
Ch 4 Identify a valid probability distribution from a description, table, or probability mass function (PMF). Plot and interpret a probability mass function. Use a probability distribution to calculate the mean and variance of a random variable. Know the PMF, mean, variance, and conditions for the binomial distribution.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
