Degree Applicable
Variable Hours
 
Prerequisite: MATH 120 or equivalent
This course is an introduction to concepts, methods and models employed in reasoning with numbers and in presenting cogent statistical arguments or solutions. Students are introduced to organizational, analytical and inference-making processes, using sample data to graphically and numerically describe samples. The course details how to estimate confidence intervals, test hypotheses and develop projections for inferential purposes in a variety of contexts and disciplines such as business, social science, biology, economics, and health science. Many different probability distributions are covered: poisson, binomial, normal, student-t, chi-sq, F-distribution and others. Performing Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), estimating simple and multiple regressions and making inference from such analysis is a major theme of this course. The use of spreadsheet-based software to compute statistics in large-data applications is an important part of lab work. CSU, UC (credit limits may apply to UC-see counselor)
