Primary Instructor:

In this course students are introduced to the concepts and applications of statistical methods and data analysis. Statistics 350 has no prerequisite and has been elected by students whose mathematics background includes only high school algebra. Examples of applications are drawn from virtually all academic areas and some attention is given to statistical process control methods. The course format includes lectures (6 hours per week) and a laboratory (3 hours per week). The laboratory section deals with the computational aspects of the course and provides a forum for review of lecture material. For this purpose, students are introduced to the use of a statistical analysis-computer package. Course evaluation is based on a combination of two examinations, a final examination, weekly homework, and lab participation.

Note:
MOS text is sometimes sold bundled with other items, such a a Stat 350 YELLOW formula card (but all pages can be printed from the CTools site), an SPSS Student Version Software CD available for PC only (but the full version of SPSS is available on all campus machines for use anytime). You do not have to buy the bundle, if you prefer to use the online version (see below) or a used 3rd edition book, that is fine.

On-Line Homework: Homework will be done on-line using the required system called LectureBook. Option 1: Stand alone at $19.99. The LectureBook homework system will also indicate to which section or chapter in the textbook the question is related. This assumes you buy/borrow a copy of Mind on Statistics separately. Option 2: Included with an on-line copy of Mind on Statistics for $64.98. This version offers instant on-line access to pertinent sections of the text as you work on your homework and rapid searching of the text. If you elect Option 1, you will have an upgrade option to add the on-line book later for $49.99.
