MATH 199 - Stretch College Statistics I


Units: 3
Three hours lecture per week
First semester in two-semester, stretch sequence covering statistical reasoning with embedded support, including operations on numbers and sets, equations and inequalities, reading tables and graphs, problem-solving, and critical thinking. Students will engage in cooperative and active learning, and learn how probability techniques, hypothesis testing, and predictive techniques are used to facilitate decision-making. Topics include descriptive statistics; probability and sampling distributions; statistical inference; correlation and linear regression; analysis of variance, chi-square and t-tests; and application of technology for statistical analysis, including the interpretation of the relevance of the statistical findings. Students will determine appropriate problem-solving techniques to address statistical questions using real-world or simulated data from broad range of disciplines, incorporating software or other technology. Successful completion of MATH 199 prepares students to enroll in MATH 200 in the following semester to fulfill their first year Mathematics/Quantitative Reasoning requirement (GE Area B4).
Graded: Crd/No Crd
