A quantitative literacy course with a statistical theme. Includes descriptive statistics, sampling, and inferential methods. Emphasizes problem solving and critical thinking. Supplements material in introductory statistics with selected topics from algebra, such as lines, roots, fractions, decimals, etc., when appropriate.
Includes summarizing data, measures of central location, measures of variation, probability, mathematical expectation, probability distributions, sampling and sampling distributions, estimation, hypothesis testing, analysis of variance, regression analysis, and correlation. Lab access fee of $30 applies.
Introductory statistics course for statistics majors. Applies discrete and continuous probability distributions to real data sets. Teaches confidence intervals and hypothesis testing for both one and two sample problems. Covers introductory topics in experimental design, linear regression, nonparametric statistics, and categorical data analysis.
Familiarizes students with the SAS statistical software package. Teaches how to organize, input data, and be able to use reference books to figure out the appropriate way to run the analysis needed using SAS.
Introduces mathematical statistics for scientists and engineers. Includes counting techniques, random variables, expected values, joint and marginal distributions, point estimation, hypothesis testing, analysis of variance, and regression.
Provides students in non-mathematical disciplines the ability to answer typical research questions for their senior projects or graduate-level research. Includes linear regression, transformations, variable selection techniques, logistic regression, indicator variables, multicollinearity, and ARIMA time series. Satisfies the VEE statistics requirement for the Society of Actuaries. Introduces SAS software as a tool for statistical analysis.
Introduces the design and analysis of randomized comparative experiments. Includes single factor ANOVAs, randomized block designs, latin squares, factorial designs, and nested and split plot designs. Covers mixed models including random effects and computation of expected mean squares to form appropriate F-ratios. Uses SAS statistical program software to perform statistical analysis.
Introduces survey sampling including simple random sampling, stratified random sampling, systematic and cluster sampling. Discusses ratio and difference estimators, weighting for non-responses, eliminating sources of bias and designing the questionnaire.
Teaches how to perform statistical inference on Markov chains, including classifying states, computing mean and variance of recurrence times, and investigating long-run limiting behavior to model physical systems uses the Poisson process. Teaches how to calculate and analyze queuing characteristics of each of the popular queuing models.
Introduces multivariate data analysis. Performs inference on data arising from multivariate normal distribution including MANOVA, principal component analysis, factor analysis, canonical correlation analysis, discriminant analysis and cluster analysis. Uses Statistical software R or SAS for data analysis on all the topics covered.
Introduces nonparametric statistical procedures to apply in situations when parametric statistics (usually based on normality) are not appropriate. Covers types of nonparametric analyses that includes one and two sample hypothesis tests, goodness-of-fit tests, contingency tables, block designs, and regression analysis.
Presents the theory and methods of quality monitoring including process capability, control charts, acceptance sampling, quality engineering, and quality design.
Introduces mathematical statistics including random variables, set theory, transformations, expectation, joint and marginal distributions, moment generating functions, and order statistics.
Continuation of STAT 4710. Includes estimation, sufficiency, completeness, hypothesis testing, statistical inference with the normal distribution, and Bayesian statistics.
Teaches topics including, but not limited to, probability theory, random variables, functions of random variables, probability distributions and their characteristics, transformations of random variables, Pearson’s correlation coefficient, and bivariate normal distribution and regression.
