Elementary probability theory with applications; random variables; distributions including a thorough discussion of the binomial, Poisson, and normal distributions; central limit theorem; histograms; sampling distributions; confidence intervals; tests of hypotheses; linear models; regression.
An introductory statistics course for pre-BSM students, which emphasizes basic topics on statistical inferences with extensive coverage of data collection and analysis as needed to evaluate the reported statistical results and to make good decisions in business. The course stresses the development of statistical thinking, the assessment of credibility and the value of the inferences made from data, both by those who analyze and those who produce them. In comparison with Math 1110, this course spends more time on statistical inference problems, less on probability, and teaches the use of Excel, a computer skill necessary nowadays in the business world.
The material of Calculus 1210 is covered in two semesters, with diversions for topics in algebra, trigonometry, complex numbers as the need for these topics arises. Mathematics 1150 is a prerequisite for 1160. Students finishing the course sequence 1150-1160 may continue with 1220 or any other course having Calculus 1210 as a prerequisite. The combination of 1150 and 1160 may count as one course toward the B.S. degree requirement.
Functions and their graphs, limits and continuity, derivatives and applications of derivatives, and introduction to the integral.
Integration; exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions; techniques of integration; mean value theorem; Taylor’s Theorem and Taylor series; and infinite series.
The objective of this course is to provide a practical overview of the statistical methods and models most likely to be encountered by scientists in practical research applications. Students will learn statistical concepts by generating and analyzing stochastic datasets using the Minitab software package. Specific topics that will be covered in this course include discrete and continuous distributions, sampling methods and descriptive statistics, the Central Limit Theorem and its applications, estimation methods, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, linear regression, and Analysis of Variance.
A combined course in Calculus I and II for students with a background in Calculus I. Students receive credit for both this course and 1210 if they receive a B- or higher. Students may not receive credit for both 1310 and 1220.
