Credit, degree applicable
Transfer CSU, UC*

This honors course, intended for students in the Honors Transfer Program, will include practice of statistics, including descriptive statistics, inferential statistics, and the role probability plays in statistical analysis. Students will calculate and interpret various descriptive statistics using graphing calculators with statistical testing capabilities or statistical software, as well as by hand. Major topics include methods of data collection and simulation; measures of central tendency, variability, and relative position; graphical summaries of data; linear regression and correlation; distributions, including normal and binomial distributions; probability theory; and inferential statistical methods. Students will choose, justify, use, and interpret the results of inferential techniques, such as confidence intervals, hypothesis tests, goodness of fit, analysis of variance, and nonparametric tests. This course emphasizes extensive, rigorous demonstrations of understanding the concepts of statistics. Students will also complete at least one project demonstrating an application or synthesis of topics covered in the course.

Note: The maximum UC credit allowed for students completing MATH 150  and PSYC 109A  or MATH 150  and SOCI 109A   is one course.
