Statistics for Scientists
The organization of data, discrete distributions (binominal, Poisson), continuous distributions (uniform, normal and skewed), and linear combinations of variables are studied. The techniques of hypothesis testing and interval estimation are applied to problems involving means, variances, proportions, frequency tables, regression, and correlation. Students are introduced to the use of statistical computer software. PREREQ: MATH 1036. (lec 3, tut 1) cr 3.
