Description: Organizing data: displaying distributions, measures of center, measures of spread, scatterplots, correlation, regression, and their interpretation. Design of experiments: simple random samples and their sampling distribution, models from probability, normal distributions, and normal approximations. Statistical inference: confidence intervals and hypothesis testing, t procedures and chi-square tests. Not intended for those who plan further studies in statistics. Except as per University policy on repeating a course, credit will not be given for this course if the student has credit in a higher level math course. Such students may be dropped from the course. Examinations are proctored. 


Comments: This course cannot be used as a prerequisite for any math courses.  This course can satisfy the foundation math requirement for majors that allow Math 105, 107, or 112. Students in nursing, nutritional sciences should take this instead of Math 263.
