Statistics is the science that turns data into information and information into knowledge.

This class covers applied statistical methodology from an analysis-of-data viewpoint. Topics covered include frequency distributions; measures of location; mean, median, mode; measures of dispersion; variance; graphic presentation; elementary probability; populations and samples; sampling distributions; one sample univariate inference problems, and two sample problems; categorical data; regression and correlation; and analysis of variance. Use of computers in data analysis is also explored.

Instructor: Brenda Gunderson

This course is part of the 2011-2014 MELO 3D project, supported by an LSA Instructional Technology Committee New Initiatives/New Infrastructure grant.
