Subject Description
This course is an introduction to probability and statistics, aimed at providing students in the flight program with the requisite tools to develop a basic understanding of the role and practice of quantitative analysis in the aviation industry. The focus will be on selecting and applying appropriate statistical tests and determining reasonable inferences and predictions from a set of data. Topics include concepts of probability; discrete random variables and probability distributions; normal, t-, and chi-square distributions; confidence intervals; hypothesis testing of one and two means; correlation; regression; and analysis of variance (ANOVA).

Credit Status

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

1. Define the notion of the probability of an event, the rules of probability, joint and conditional probability, and basic statistics such as mean and variance.

1. Solve basic counting and combinatorial problems.

1. Apply the concepts of probability to calculate the likelihood of an event.

1. Apply Bayes’ theorem, and the notion of conditional probability, to a variety of aviation specific examples.

1. Understand the difference between discrete and continuous random variables and their associated probability distributions.  Work through problems involving applications of the normal and binomial distributions.

1. Select and apply the statistical test or tests that are most appropriate to analyze a set of data.

1. Determine reasonable inferences and predictions from a set of data in order to make appropriate decisions.
