Print Page Report a broken link

5 credits

This course provides a real-world introduction to statistical concepts and reasoning, placing emphasis on statistical interpretation and intuition rather than on mathematical rigor. Data increasingly surrounds us, in business and in personal life. It is increasingly important to be able to make sense of that data by interpreting it properly and applying it in a variety of circumstances. Students examine everyday statistics found in business and in society regarding trends, meaningful differences, and whether a change is something they need to care about, with an eye toward interpretation of data and biases in data to allow better, more confident decision making.
