COURSE CONTENT

Student Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
Untitled document
1.  Apply arithmetic, pre-algebra, and algebra skills necessary for success in Elementary
    Statistics.
2.  Apply knowledge of algebra and descriptive statistics to inferential statistics.
 

Objectives: Untitled document
During this course, students will:
1. Apply statistics-related pre-algebra skills necessary for success in Elementary Statistics.
2. Apply statistics-related algebra skills necessary for success in Elementary Statistics.
3. Apply descriptive statistics to communicate findings in the context of the data.
4. Apply knowledge of linear functions to construct, use, and interpret mathematical models to
    represent and communicate relationships in quantitative data.
5. Apply proportional reasoning, percents, and fractions to probability problems found in an
    Elementary Statistics course.
6. Recognize the distinction between sample statistics and population parameters and interpret
    the results of statistical inference contextually.
7. Use technology to solve problems found in an Elementary Statistics course, such as
    calculating probabilities, data exploration, regression, and statistical inference.
8. Apply effective learning strategies for success in college.
