STAT1130 - Statistical Reasoning
Fall 2014

This is an online statistics course for ACE students. It provides an introduction to the application of non-theoretical statistical methodology in which concepts are explained intuitively and supported by examples. The first part of the course deals with the efficient collection, organization, and description of data, commonly referred to as descriptive statistics. The second part provides a brief introduction to probability concepts, discrete and continuous probability distributions will be discussed. The third part of the course, statistical interference, is the process of drawing conclusions about unknown characteristics of a population. Interval estimation and hypothesis testing for one and two populations will be presented. The last part of the course is predictive statistics; correlation and regression analysis will be used to develop predictions of future values based on historical data. 3 credits

STAT2110 - Statistics
Fall 2014

This course is designed to give the student a general understanding of statistical tools as they are used in making decisions. The examples and exercises emphasize interpretation and are drawn from a wide range of actual situations. Excel computer software is used to simplify complex computations. The first section covers analysis decision-making through the use of summarized descriptive data, both ungrouped and grouped. This includes the study of frequency distributions, measures of central tendency and measures of dispersion. This section then deals with decision-making based upon classical hypothesis testing. It includes the study of curve fitting, large and small sample theory, the z distribution and the student's distribution. This coverage provides the student with a working understanding of statistical inference as a guide for judgment and action. The second section deals with more complex situations in decision-making with presentation of analysis of variance and chi-square testing with one and two variables and multiple outcomes of each variable. Excel is employed to handle the more complex calculations. The third section introduces the concepts and theories of correlation and linear regression and how these are used in statistical inference.
