Block B - 4th floor - Department of Mathematics Office e-mail: hkhalil@aust.edu.lb Course Objectives To deliver a broad perspective of essential principles and practices in statistics and develop knowledge for the effective use of these tools in business and economics. By the end of the term, you should be able to: 1. Read, interpret and vocabulary and symbols. understand the statistical

Course Outcomes

2. Organize data and construct appropriate graphs to represent the data in a concise, easy-to-understand visual form. 3. Apply statistical methods to summarize data: measures of central tendencies, measures of position and measures of variation. 4. Analyze the outcomes of a certain event using counting techniques.

5. Learn about probability; its meaning, how it is computed, and how to evaluate it in terms of the likelihood of an event actually happening. 6. Understand the Poisson Distribution, as well as the concepts of a probability distribution. 7. Use the concept of normal distribution to determine probabilities. 8. Perform statistical analysis using computer software such as Excel, Mega-Stat, Minitab Academic Honesty Submitting someone elses work as your own is not tolerated. The assignments are scaled to be small enough in size that they may be completed by the individual student. The instructor realizes that homework is frequently a collaborative task, and understands that some students may require some help. Students who collaborate with others are expected to write their homework by themselves on clean A4 sheets. Students are not expected to collaborate on examinations. If the instructor determines that academic dishonesty has occurred, the student(s) involved will normally be given an immediate grade of F and dropped from the course. Class participation is expected and will form a part of the final grade. Students are expected to attend all class sessions and to be on time. Roll will be called each class meeting. Classes missed for legitimate reasons, such as illness or temporary duty assignments are excusable. The student is expected to make up the missed work by making arrangements with the instructor. The student is responsible for providing the instructor with justification for an excused absence either prior to or immediately after the absence. Five unexcused absences are excessive and six are ground for an involuntary withdrawal from the course. Students who come late to class will not be allowed to attend the session unless they get written permission from the office of the dean of students.
