Credits 4 Lab/Practicum/Clinical Hours 0 Lecture Hours 4
Description

Topics include basic measurements of central tendency and variability, frequency distributions, probability; binomial, Poisson, Chi-square, Student t, and normal distributions; sampling distributions, estimation of parameters, hypothesis testing, correlation, and linear regression. A graphing calculator will be required.

• Identify and solve problems involving discrete probability distributions.
• Identify and solve problems involving continuous probability distributions.
• Apply the Central Limit Theorem to problems involving sampling distributions.
• Calculate a confidence interval estimate of population mean, proportion, or standard deviation.
• Test a claim concerning a population mean, proportion, or standard deviation.
• Calculate and interpret the linear correlation coefficient.
• Produce a linear regression model to solve an application problem.
