MATH 115 covers elementary probability and statistics including standard deviation, calculations and inferences about means and proportions, normal distributions and linear correlation.
Upon successful completion MATH 115, the student should be able to:
- Describe and interpret various descriptive statistics such as mean, median, mode, range, standard deviation and quartiles.
- Draw and interpret various graphs such as frequency histograms, bar graphs, and boxplots.
- Solve problems involving the probability of events.
- Calculate probabilities involving normal random variables and categorical data.
- Determine and interpret (for large samples) confidence interval estimates of population means and proportions.
- Conduct hypothesis tests using z and chi-square about means and proportions of populations.
- For a set of paired data, produce a scatter plot, find the regression line, and find and interpret the correlation coefficient.
