 Basic Course Information:
 Course Description: Techniques of analysis of numerical data, including measures of central tendency, dispersion, probability statistical inference, sampling theory, linear correlation, regression, probability distributions, tests of significance, and analysis of variance.
 Any required prerequisites: The student should have successfully complete DMT 033, Math 1332 or have the appropriate placement scores, or consent of the instructor.
 Student Learning Outcomes
 Explain the use of data collection and statistics as tools to reach reasonable conclusions.
 Recognize, examine and interpret the basic principles of describing and presenting data.
 Compute and interpret empirical and theoretical probabilities using the rules of probabilities and combinatorics.
 Explain the role of probability in statistics.
 Examine, analyze and compare various sampling distributions for both discrete and continuous random variables.
 Describe and compute confidence intervals.

 Testing Requirements
 Students will be required to take the six major tests (including the final) during the semester. Students are required to take the final exam at a testing center. Students should find a testing center near their current location and give the details to their instructor.
 Students are allowed to use their book, notes and calculator on all tests except the final.
 Students are required to make a 60 or higher on the final exam or they automatically fail the course. (The final must be taken in a testing center.)
 About 1011 lab assignments will be assigned.
