Statistics Computer Application COURSE SYLLABUS

I. Course Objective
The purpose of this course is to give students, primarily those in the fields of business administration and economics, a conceptual introduction to the field of statistics and its many applications. The text we use is applications oriented and written with the needs of the non mathematician in mind; the mathematical pre requisite is knowledge of algebra. Statistical Analysis develops and applies the basic concepts and methods of statistical in the organization and presentation of business data. Participants develop basic applied skills in the areas of elementary probability, measures of central tendency and variation, tests of statistical significance, sampling, and simple linear regression and correlation. The course stresses the role of statistics in interpreting business data and using the interpreted data in the decision making process.

II. Method of Instruction
The Instructor will rely on lectures, class participation, in-class quizzes, and group activities in presenting the material. Students are expected to have read the assigned material and worked problems provided at the end of each major section and chapter prior to the designated class time. Students should work a sufficient number of the problems to be comfortable with the concept being presented. Students having difficulties understanding the concept should pay particular attention to the problems labeled Self-Test in the textbook. Students are encouraged to bring a calculator -- preferably a laptop/notebook -- to class to ease calculations during lectures, quizzes, and examinations.

III. Textbook
The primary textbook for the course is: Anderson, Sweeney, and Williams, Statistics for Business and Economics, 11e. Additional reading and problem materials will be provided.

IV. Lecture and Examination Schedule
We will attempt to proceed according to the following schedule. Attendance at the lectures is mandatory. All absences must be discussed with the professor in advance. Absences from examinations is strongly discouraged (if not prohibited) and allowed in only the worst of personal circumstances. Each class session is 150 minutes in duration. Fourteen (14) class sessions plus a midterm examination and a final examination period are scheduled.
