This course is primarily an
introduction to inferential statistics. Topics to be covered
include descriptive statistics, elementary probability, the
binomial and normal distributions, estimation, and hypothesis
testing.
I have office hours: 5:156:00
Mondays and Wednesdays before class.
Here's
a copy of the syllabus. Instructions for registering for
MyStatLab if you choose to use it are here.
You are welcome to use the previous
(12th) edition of the Triola. The problem sets for that edition
are here. The problems and
the numbering system of the chapter sections have changed, so
you'll have to do a little checking to match up the
problems with what we covered in class.
The following is a
tentative schedule; check back for updates:
