2. Define mean, median, mode, percentiles, variability and standard
deviation and compute each for sets of data.
3. Use laws of probability and Baye's formula.
4. Define and apply combinations, permutations, sample space, and
5. Apply Central Limit Theorem.
6. Calculate sampling distributions of means, proportions and standard
7. Compute confidence intervals and required sample size.
8. Perform hypothesis testing for mean, proportion and variance.
9. Implement goodness of fit test, the test for independence, and
Analysis of Variance.
10. Discuss linear regression and correlation, and use technology to
compute regression equations.
11. Use statistics software package for evaluation of data and inference.
