Subject Title

Subject Description
Mathematics is the cradle of all creations. Mathematical thinking provides a valuable way of seeing and exploring the world. Qualities that are nurtured by mathematics are power of reasoning, creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving ability and even effective communication skills.

This is a one-semester statistics course that is designed to introduce students to statistical methods of collection, analysis, and presentation of quantitative data. Through the process of applying statistical methods, the ability to interpret quantitative data used for making generalizations, projections, and decisions, under uncertain conditions is developed. Emphasis will be on the use of both descriptive and inferential statistical techniques within the workplace. Learner will utilize spreadsheet software to present and analyze data.

Credit Status
One degree level credit

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:

1. Summarize data created from a spreadsheet in the form of graphs, tables, charts, and written description.

2. Calculate measures of location and dispersion by applying knowledge of spreadsheet software methods.

3. Differentiate between subjective, relative and classical frequency probabilities.

4. Calculate using spreadsheet software the means and standard deviation of discrete random variable, binominal distribution and normal probability distribution.

5. Calculate using spreadsheet software the mean, standard error of random variables, and sampling distribution of the mean.

6. Compute the sample size to estimate the population mean and proportion.

7. Interpret the results of financial data through the calculation of confidence interval for the population mean and for population proportion.

8. Evaluate results through the construction of a hypothesis test of a mean or proportion for large sample size.

9. Interpret simple regression and correlation analysis that has been calculated using spreadsheet software.

10. Accept responsibility for developing effective participation strategies for working independently.

11. Demonstrate computer skills through the application of statistical software.
