PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS SYLLABUS:

 Textbook: Elementary Statistics: Picturing the World. Larson and Farber.   ..”Decision making is an important aspect of our lives. We make decisions based on the information we have, our attitudes, and our values. Statistical methods help us examine information. Moreover, statistics can be used for making decisions when we are faced with uncertainties. For instance, if we wish to estimate the proportion of people who will have a severe reaction to a flu shot without giving the shot to everyone who wants it, statistics provides appropriate methods. Statistical methods enable us to look at information from a small collection of people or items and make inferences about a larger collection of people or items.”   The grade will be based on quizzes and tests.
