MATH 141 - Introduction to Statistical Reasoning

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)

The purpose of this course is to develop an appreciation and understanding of the exploration and interpretation of data. Topics include exploratory data analysis, basic probability, design of studies, and inferential methods including confidence interval estimaation and hypothesis testing.  Applications and examples are drawn from a wide variety of disciplines. When cross-listed with biology, examples are drawn primarily from biology. Statistical software is used.  Computationally less intensive than MATH 240 . The Department.

Prerequisite(s): Three years of high school mathematics.


Not open to students with AP credit in statistics or students who have completed MATH 240 , ECON 209  or PSYC 200 .

Not recommended for students who have taken a semester of calculus: those students should instead consider MATH 240 .  AP Statistics, MATH 141 and MATH 240  all provide an introduction to statistics and students should not take more than one; they all can serve as a prerequisite for further statistics courses in the Mathematics and Statistics Department.

In certain semesters, one section may be cross-listed with BIOL 141 .
