This course is equivalent to the first term of a non-Calculus-based Elementary Statistics course in college. After taking this course students will be able to utilize basic statistical processes to analyze a body of data and draw inferences from it. Some of the topics discussed include: mean, median, mode, range, variance, standard deviation, least-squares regression, z-scores, the normal distribution, the chi-square distribution, the student-t distribution, and additional variance tests. The students should also be able to design a study and carry out the necessary processes to draw inferences from the study. An additional dimension of the course is to provide students with basic knowledge of probability.
