Statistics 151 is a theory and laboratory-based course in which students are introduced to fundamental concepts, techniques, and procedures of quantitative data analysis. Students complete the course with a working knowledge and understanding of descriptive and inferential statistics. Although mathematical theory is kept to minimum, this course assumes students have taken Mathematics 30. The course content sets a foundation of understanding in descriptive statistics where the focus is one of describing sample data. This descriptive foundation is built upon with inferential statistics where students use the knowledge gained for describing samples to generalize to and predict for populations. Students have access to a computer lab and are required to work with a variety of data sets coinciding with the theory.
