STT 3820 - Statistical Methods I (3)


When Offered: Fall; Spring
GEN ED: Quantitative Literacy
A continuation of STT 2810  or STT 2820 . A study of parametric and non-parametric statistical methods and inferential procedures. Topics commonly covered include an introduction to methods of data collection such as simulation, surveys and experiments; single parameter inference for means and proportions; techniques for comparing two distributions; error rates and power; inference for simple linear regression and multiple regression least squares models; introductions to one-way and two-way analysis of variance models; and contingency table analysis. Nonparametric alternatives are presented for many methods in the course when the assumptions for parametric methods are not met. Emphasis is on a non-theoretical development of statistical techniques and on the interpretation of statistical results. Statistical software will be utilized in analysis of data.
Prerequisite: STT 2810  or STT 2820  or equivalent. Demonstrated Readiness for College-level Math.
