Introduction to Statistics (STAT 200, 3 Credits)

Prerequisite: MATH 012, MATH 037, or an appropriate score on a placement test. An introduction to statistics. The objective is to assess the validity of statistical conclusions; organize, summarize, interpret, and present data using graphical and tabular representations; and apply principles of inferential statistics. Focus is on selecting and applying appropriate statistical tests and determining reasonable inferences and predictions from a set of data. Topics include methods of sampling; percentiles; concepts of probability; probability distributions; normal, t-, and chi-square distributions; confidence intervals; hypothesis testing of one and two means; proportions; binomial experiments; sample size calculations; correlation; regression; and analysis of variance (ANOVA). Students may receive credit for only one of the following courses: BEHS 202, BEHS 302, BMGT 230, ECON 321, GNST 201, MATH 111, MGMT 316, PSYC 200, SOCY 201, STAT 100, STAT 200, STAT 225, or STAT 230.

Intermediate Statistics and Probability (STAT 250, 3 Credits)

Prerequisite: STAT 200 or STAT 225 or STAT 230. Further study of elementary statistics and probability. Topics include inference for two populations, population standard deviations and proportions, chi-square procedures, descriptive and inferential methods in regression and correlation, analysis of variance, multiple regression analysis, model building in regression, and experimental design and analysis of variance.
