STT 5811 - Statistical Concepts and Applications I (3)

When Offered: Fall
This course introduces students at the post-calculus level to statistical concepts, applications, and theory. Topics include: counting methods, basic probability, sampling methods, an introduction to the most common discrete and continuous random variables, sampling distributions, and single parameter inferential methods including confidence intervals and hypothesis testing using large-sample methods, exact methods, and computationally intensive methods such as the bootstrap. Statistical concepts will be developed through simulations, and applications will focus on statistical problem-solving. The course will introduce prospective college teachers to the content and pedagogy recommended in the American Statistical Association’s Guidelines with regard to statistics and probability.
Prerequisite: MAT 1120 (Calculus with Analytic Geometry II) and STT 2810 (Introduction to Statistics) or equivalent course.
