Course Description:
This course is a study of basic descriptive and inferential statistics. Topics include types of data,
sampling techniques, measures of central tendency and dispersion, elementary probability,
discrete and continuous probability distributions, sampling distributions, hypothesis testing,
confidence intervals, and simple linear regression. Lecture hours per week (4: 45).
Prerequisite(s): MATH 111 or MATH 140
Course Goals:
Enable students to select and apply appropriate descriptive and inferential statistical techniques
to analyze varying types of data, to defend the rationale for selection of the techniques, and to
effectively communicate results of their analyses.
Learning Outcomes:
Alignment with Worldwide College of Arts & Sciences general education program outcomes
is
indicated in parentheses. Upon completion of the course, students will be able to do the
following:
В Ver. 12/11
В В В 1
В 1. Construct, compute, and use appropriate graphical displays and numerical measures
to make accurate conclusions about data. (PO 2 & 7)
2. Identify various discrete and continuous probability distributions, identify skewness
and symmetry in a distribution, and compute appropriate parameters and probabilities
associated with probability distributions including sampling distributions. (PO 2 & 7)
3. Explain the importance of randomness in sampling, select and apply appropriate
sampling techniques. (PO 2 & 7)
4. Select and apply appropriate procedures to estimate parameters and test claims
about parameters. (PO 2 & 7)
5. Given a set of data, choose appropriate software, use the software to analyze the
data, and accurately interpret the output from the software. (PO 2 & 7)
6. Communicate the results of statistical analyses in a clear and concise manner. (PO 2
& 7)
7. Be a critical consumer of statistics presented by the media and other sources.
Accurately interpret the statistics presented, identify ways in which they might be
subject to misinterpretation either intentional or unintentional, and apply ethics to the
interpretation and presentation of statistics. (PO 2 & 7)
8. Apply the concepts addressed in the course to problem solving including problems
related to aviation/aerospace. (PO 2 & 7)

В Ver. 12/11
В В В 3
В All assignments will be completed in a professional manner and on time, unless prior arrangements have
been made with the professor. Blackboard assignments (if required) are graded with class participation.
This course includes weekly activities, each of which may have grade points associated with them.
Unless prior arrangements have been made with the instructor, students are expected to participate each
week, according to the course schedule. This is especially important with regards to discussion activities.
Weekly discussions typically include both an initial posting and one or more substantive replies.
Note: Proper etiquette has to do with keeping it simple by using proper English and proper spelling В±
spell check works well in Blackboard.
