The primary aim of the course is to help students develop a basic understanding and use of statistical concepts and methods to facilitate study and research in other disciplines. Major topics that we will cover include (1) exploring data and relationships among data, (2) producing (collecting) data and understanding sampling distributions, and (3) making statistically correct interpretations and inferences. Specific topics we will cover include: data collection, descriptive statistics, both graphical and numerical, general and sampling distributions, measures of central tendency, measures of variability, grouped data, the normal distribution, central limit theorem and the fundamentals of statistical interference, including confidence intervals and hypothesis testing and estimation, simple regression and correlation, the t-distribution and chi-square test. Students who have successfully learned this material will be prepared to interpret data from the field they are studying.
