MATH057 PO - Statistical Thinking

When Offered: Each fall.
Instructor(s): J. Hardin
Credit: 1

The application of statistics to real-world problems goes beyond the application of formulae to a body of
data. Statisticians become involved in research problems at the initial stages of formulating the
hypotheses to be addressed, and continue their involvement through the design and presentation of the
results. This course exposes the student to the complete spectrum of activities in which a statistician is
involved. Many topics from introductory statistics will be covered including conditional probability,
sampling, hypothesis testing, and ethical reporting. Course is equivalent to MATH 058 PO
