Exploring and Understanding Data (Math 107)
Students will be able to:
read and interpret graphical and tabular displays of data, and make estimations
create tables, charts, graphs, and histograms to represent data graphically, using various tools such as spreadsheets and graphing calculators
evaluate and interpret descriptive statistics that describe a data set, including measures of central tendency (e.g. mean, median) and dispersion (e.g. range, standard deviation)
calculate empirical probabilities of events
compute and interpret z-scores for normally-distributed data, and use them to find probabilities
describe the relationship between two variables graphically (scatterplot) and establish an association between them
create and interpret linear models of data
work with linear regression models using calculators and/or spreadsheets
use the techniques and tools learned in this course to represent quantitative data encountered in other courses or found in public databases
PPL 30+ or MCLG 40+ or SAT I MSS 530+ or ACT MATH 21+ .
Test scores expire after 1 year. Some students may need to take Math 100 first.
