Prerequisite: Mathematics 70 or Mathematics 73 with a minimum grade of C or qualification by testing (El Camino College Mathematics Placement Test) and assessment.
This course will cover chapters 1 – 12 (see schedule at the end of the syllabus for detail information).
The focus of this course is the basic practice of statistics, including descriptive statistics, inferential statistics, and the role probability plays in statistical analysis. Students calculate and interpret statistical parameters using graphing calculators with statistical testing capabilities and statistical software, as well as by hand. Major topics include methods of data collection and simulation; measures of central tendency, variability, and relative position; graphical summaries of data; linear regression and correlation; distributions, including normal and binomial distributions; probability theory ;and inferential statistical methods. Students choose, justify, use, and interpret the results of inferential techniques, such as confidence intervals, hypothesis tests, goodness of fit, analysis of variance, and nonparametric tests.
