### Courses

**STAT 1380. Descriptive & Inferential Stat.**

Basics of Descriptive and Inferential Statistics (3-0) A course in statistical literacy. Emphasis will be on standard descriptive measures of location, spread, and association. Regression, probability and sampling, and Binomial distribution. Interpretation of data which occur in daily life (polls, weather forecasting, surveys, quality control, etc.) will be stressed.

**STAT 2480. Elementary Statistical Methods.**

An elementary introduction to probability, common probability, distributions such as the binomial and Gaussian distributions, exploratory analysis of data, hypothesis testing, confidence intervals, contingency table analysis and chi-square goodness-of-fit, simple linear regression, one-way ANOVA, and Bonferroni correction for multiple comparisons. A statistical software package will be used for analysis of data and simulations to illustrate concepts.

**STAT 3320. Probability and Statistics.**

By the end of this course, students should be able to read a word problem, realize the uncertainty that is involved in a situation described, select a suitable probability model, estimate and test its parameters on the basis of real data, compute probabilities of interesting events, and make appropriate conclusions. This course covers theory and applications of probability models, random variables, discrete and continuous probability distributions, joint and conditional distributions, sampling distributions, central limit theorem, hypothesis testing, confidence intervals, and exposure to simple linear regression. Time-to-failure probability models are considered. Students may not receive credit for both STAT 3320 and STAT 3330.

**STAT 3325. Prob & Applied Statistics.**

Introduces students to probability and statistics applicable to mathematics majors planning a teaching career. By the end of this course, students should be able to read a word problem, realize the uncertainty that is involved in a situation described, select a suitable probability model, estimate and test its parameters on the basis of real data, compute probabilities of interesting events, and make appropriate conclusions. This course covers theory and applications of probability models, random variables, discrete and continuous probability distributions, sampling distributions, central limit theorem, hypothesis testing, and confidence intervals.
