MAT 1160 - Elements of Probability and Statistics
4 credit hours
Basic concepts of probability and statistics are applied to a variety of applications. Designed for students in elementary education; students in other disciplines may tailor assignments to their interest. Credit may not be received for both MAT 1140 [formerly 114] and MAT 1160 [formerly 116], nor can credit be received for both MAT 1160 and MAT 1190 [formerly 119].
Prerequisite: a grade of “C” or higher in MAT 1050 [formerly 105].

Upon successful completion of the course, each student should be able to:
1: Find probabilities via theoretical, empirical, and simulation methods.
2: Use basic principles and rules of probability including conditional probability, independence, expected value, and Bayes’ Theorem, to solve problems.
3: Apply counting principles, including the multiplication rule, permutations and combinations.
4: Choose, interpret, and create graphical representations of data with and without technology.
5: Choose, calculate, and apply standard statistical measures with and without technology.
6: In terpret statistics used in educational measurement and testing.
7: Identify and apply various sampling techniques
8: Estimate parameters, make decisions, and identify possible error using sample data and statistical inference.
9: Perform regression and analyze associated statistics.
10: Communicate effectively about probability and statistics.
11: Use technology appropriately to enhance the learning of probability and statistics.
