IV. Student Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, a student will be able to:

This algebra-based probability and statistics course covers descriptive statistics, binomial and normal distribution, confidence intervals, and hypothesis testing using z-, t-, chi square-, and f-distributions. Correlation and regression are also introduced.

V. Topical Outline (Course Content)

1. The student will be able to learn, understand, and demonstrate applying the statistical concepts to skill-based problems from the course content listed in section V. 2. The student will be able to learn, understand, calculate, interpret, and graph descriptive statistical values. 3. The student will be able to calculate, analyze, and interpret results of confidence intervals and hypothesis testing in inferential statistics. 4. The student will be able to apply the appropriate statistical tools to describe, analyze, and infer from real world data.

VI. Delivery Methodologies
