Prerequisite: Satisfactory completion of Geometry and HSA-related or Maryland College and Career Ready courses in Algebra II or Algebra II, part 2
This course provides students with an introduction to concepts and applications associated with the study of statistics and data analysis. Descriptive statistics involve methods of organizing, representing, and summarizing information from samples or populations. Inferential statistics involve methods of using information from a sample to draw conclusions regarding the population. Also covered are random variables, probability laws, counting techniques, binomial and normal distributions, applications to the Central Limit Theorem, confidence intervals and tests of statistical hypotheses involving the mean and proportions. One and two sample tests with dependent and independent samples are examined and topics from linear regression and analysis of variance are introduced. Topics from parametric and non-parametric statistics are introduced.
