3. Course Description
Aim: To equip students with the basic concepts and tools of Statistics, Probability and their respective
application in sciences and engineering.
Description: The course covers Basic Terminologies and tools in statistics, Data sampling and Presentation,
Simple (Linear) Regression and Correlation Analyses, Basic Terminologies in probability, Conditional
probabilities and Bayes Rule, Probability distributions, Application of the Theory of Reliability in
relation with exponential Probability distribution; Application of Chi Square Probability distribution
Parameter estimation and hypotheses testing.

4. Learning Outcomes
After completion of the course students will have the following attributes:
4.1 Knowledge
4.1.1 Identify Classification of data, Types of data, Data measurement scales and the different methods of data
collection.

6. Methods of Instruction

Making 3 to 5 minutes recitation about the previous lesson.


100 minute lectures using inductive and deductive assertions

There is a 100 minutes tutorial/activity sessions in every weeks.


Students must be solve worksheet problems independently or in group (More of
student centered approach).
Sometimes students are expected to present statistical data in a form of Tables,
Graphs and Charts.
Students will be evaluated in their participation in solving worksheet problems and
their participation in class discussion.
There will be one mini project work that should be performed in groups and present
their works.

Copying from any outside sources (e.g. Fellow students and internet etc.) on any material to be graded is

not permitted, and will be considered cheating.


Cheating will result in failure of the assignment, failure in the class and/or face possible disciplinary action.
Each student is
o Responsible for securing his or her work from copying.
o Expected to abide by college policies in academic manner.
11. Due Date
All assignment must be turned in the class on the due date for full credit.
No assignment will be accepted after class on the due date.
Failure of submission and presentation of group assignment awarded as zero out of 10.

12. Classroom Behavior


Anything that disturbs your instructor or your colleagues during the class period is considered as a
troublesome (For instance, using mobile, PDA, making offensive remarks, sleeping, working on
assignments related to other courses, etc.)
In general troublesome behaviors are completely prohibited.
