Statistics Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics MS 150 Course Title Department and Number
Course Description: A one semester course designed as an introduction to the basic ideas of data presentation, descriptive statistics, linear regression, and inferential statistics including confidence intervals and hypothesis testing. Basic concepts are studied using applications from education, business, social science, and the natural sciences. The course uses spreadsheet software for both data analysis and presentation.
