Introduction to Statistics (STAT 200, 3 Credits)
An introduction to statistics. The objective is to assess the validity of statistical conclusions; organize, summarize, interpret, and present data using graphical and tabular representations; and apply principles of inferential statistics. Focus is on selecting and applying appropriate statistical tests and determining reasonable inferences and predictions from a set of data. Topics include methods of sampling; percentiles; concepts of probability; probability distributions; normal, t-, and chi-square distributions; confidence intervals; hypothesis testing of one and two means; proportions; binomial experiments; sample size calculations; correlation; regression; and analysis of variance (ANOVA). Students may receive credit for only one of the following courses: BEHS 202, BEHS 302, BMGT 230, ECON 321, GNST 201, MATH 111, MGMT 316, PSYC 200, SOCY 201, STAT 100, STAT 200, STAT 225, or STAT 230.

Applied Probability and Statistics (STAT 400, 3 Credits)
Prerequisite: MATH 141. An intermediate study of statistical and probabilistic theory. The aim is to apply quantitative tools for decision making and interpret statistical results in professional literature and the media. Topics include random variables, standard distributions, sampling methods, law of large numbers and the Central Limit Theorem, moments, estimations of parameters, and testing of hypotheses.
