In this course, students demonstrate competency in the basic concepts, logic, and issues involved in statistical reasoning. Topics include summarizing and analyzing data, sampling and study design, and probability.
- Summarizing Data: The graduate evaluates categorical and quantitative data using appropriate numerical measures and graphical displays.
- Examining Relationships: The graduate evaluates the relationship between two variables through the creation and interpretation of numerical summaries and visual displays.
- Designing Studies: The graduate designs and conducts observational studies, controlled experiments, and surveys to explore population characteristics.
- Theoretical and Empirical Probability: The graduate applies theoretical or empirical probability to a situation to quantify uncertainty.
- Determining Probability: The graduate determines the probability of events using simulations, diagrams, and probability rules.
