This is a year long course that requires selection of both semesters: S1 and S2. This is a project based course designed to introduce students to the four themes of statistics, exploring data, sampling and experimentation, anticipating patterns and statistical inference. Real world applications will be a primary emphasis. Students will also be incorporating the use of technology and problem solving skills.

Outcomes:

  • Construct and interpret distributions with graphs, charts, and tables
  • Describe and compare distributions
  • Calculate numerical summaries by hand and using technology
  • Describe and interpret locations in a distribution (z-scores, percentiles, etc.)
  • Perform Normal distribution calculations including assessing normality
  • Construct and interpret scatterplots
  • Measure, calculate, and interpret correlation and a least square regression line -Interpret computer output
  • Describe different sampling methods (stratified, cluster, etc.)
  • Conduct simple random samples (using a random number table and technology)
  • Design comparative experiments (completely randomized, randomized block, and matched pairs designs)
  • Use rules of probability to construct venn diagrams, two-way tables, and determine probabilities
  • Apply the concept of discrete random variables to many different statistical settings
  • Calculate the expected values of a discrete random variable
  • Describe continuous random variables
  • Compute probabilities involving binomial and geometric random variables
