MATH 209: An Introduction to Statistics


(1 Unit)
Prerequisite: 2.0 or higher in MATH 100   or appropriate score on the mathematics placement assessment.
Statistics is the art/science of collecting and interpreting data. Topics include probability, probability distributions which include the binomial and normal distributions, the central limit theorem, sampling distributions, confidence interval estimation, and hypothesis testing. Students will then advance to linear regressions, goodness-of-fit tests, and analysis of variance. Emphasis is placed on multiple applications in the life and social sciences. A minimum grade of 2.0 is required in any mathematics course used as a prerequisite for another mathematics course. Anderson, Bollman.
