MATH 115 - Statistics

Credit Hours: 3
Lecture Hours: 3 or 4
Laboratory Hours: 0

Prerequisite(s): None

Restriction(s): None

Corequisite(s): None

This course begins with a study of basic data analysis using various graphical and numerical descriptions and one- and two-variable statistics. Concepts of sampling and experimental design are introduced. Sampling distributions are followed by statistical inference including confidence intervals and hypothesis tests for population means and proportions, ending with an analysis of variance and Chi- square. Graphing calculators are employed to study realistic data sets.  A graphing calculator or simulator comparable to TI-83, TI-83 plus, or TI-84 graphing calculator is required for this course.

Student Learning Outcomes of the Course:
  1. Students will demonstrate the ability to interpret and draw inferences from mathematical models such as formulas, graphs, and tables.
  2. Students will demonstrate the ability to represent mathematical information symbolically, visually, numerically and verbally.
  3. Students will demonstrate the ability to employ quantitative methods such as arithmetic or statistics to solve problems.
  4. Students will demonstrate the ability to estimate and check mathematical results for reasonableness
  5. Students will demonstrate the ability to recognize the limits of mathematical and statistical methods
