Introduction to Statistics
One-semester course. This class is ideal for students who have mastered the basics of algebra and want to explore other mathematical fields. The class will introduce students to interpreting categorical and qualitative data, descriptive statistics (averages, measures of dispersion, types of distributions), conditional probability and the rules of probability, techniques of sampling, making inferences, and justifying conclusions.
Introduction to Statistics is a project-based class. The textbook will be used primarily to supplement the materials provided by the instructor. The primary goal of the class is to provide a strong background for students who may wish to pursue a college level statistics class.
Prerequisites: Successful completion of Algebra I. In addition, students should be comfortable using a keyboard to input work.
