# STAT 1010 - Probability and Statistics

Liberal Arts

Statistics

Assistant Dean: Steve Haynes PhD
3 Credit(s)
This course provides the student with an overview of probability and statistics. Probability terminology, concepts and rules are emphasized in solving probability problems. Descriptive statistics, including measures of central tendency and dispersion, charts, tables and diagrams are used to summarize data. The student is introduced to the binomial, Poisson, hyper-geometric, normal and t-distributions. Confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, correlation, and linear regression are used to make conclusions concerning population parameters from sample data. This course meets the requirements for OTM Introductory Statistics TMM010. UG
3 Lecture Hour(s);
Required as Prerequisite or Concurrent Course(s): MATH 0084  (Minimum grade of C- required) or qualifying placement test score OR Co-requisite of STAT 0086
