BASIC STATISTICS STA 101 3 UNITS COLLEGE ALGEBRA (MTH 101) In this course, the students learn the basic concepts of statistics and how to use statistical methods with emphasis basically on descriptive statistics. It also deals with the fundamentals of probability, probability distributions, and the use of statistical inference such as interval estimation and testing hypothesis through chi-square and analysis of variance. Regression and correlation analysis and forecasting methods are also taken up as statistical tools in problems related to business and economics. The students also learn how to use statistical presentations as an aid to reporting information and to use computers to generate statistical presentation of data. At the end of this course, the student should able to 1. Discuss the general statistical principles which they will find useful regardless of their field of specialization; 2. Define statistical terms and understand the different statistical methods which will enable them to read intelligently and critically statistical data; 3. Apply proficiently a number of important statistical techniques; 4. Demonstrate critical thinking in solving statistical problems. Prepared by: Ian Walter M. Along INSTRUCTOR November, 2009
