Exploring and Understanding Data (Math 107)


COURSE OBJECTIVES:

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

PREREQUISITES

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.
