Grading:  Homework will be assigned, and you will be expected to do all of it.  You will have quizzes (as scheduled) based on the assigned homework problems. The quizzes will contribute 20% towards your final letter grade. You will have two (2) non-comprehensive hour exams during the semester. For these tests, you will be permitted to use both sides of one regular sheet of paper for notes. These exams  will be worth 50% of your final grade.  No make-ups on  exams or quizzes will be given. A comprehensive final exam will be given in the end of the semester, which will be worth 30% of your course grade. For the final, you may use both sides of two regular sheets for class notes.

General Education Outcomes:

STA 2014 is designed to satisfy the following criteria from the Central Student Outcomes of General Education:

IA. think critically, reason soundly, and argue effectively,
as demonstrated by the ability to:
1. analyze arguments according to standard criteria
2. assume and defend a position on a given topic
3. use systematic processes, including the collection and analysis of evidence, to form and support conclusions

We will reach these goals by analyzing data and doing Hypothesis Tests. Both of these
activities are carried out by applying standard statistical techniques to the problems we
are considering. Once a statistical inference is made about a data set, the techniques used
to make that inference can also be used to defend it. Also, when we do an Hypothesis
Test, our conclusion as to whether or not it is statistically significant is based on an
analysis of the data.

IB. demonstrate competence in the use of information technology, as demonstrated
by the ability to:
2. use appropriate software for developing written and graphic materials
and for organizing, analyzing, and presenting data

Students will use the TI – 83 graphing calculator to organize, analyze and present data.

IID. Mathematical and Quantitative Reasoning
1. Students should be able to demonstrate general knowledge of the
breadth, power, and development of major areas of mathematics.
2. Students should be able to demonstrate proficiency in solving problems
using mathematical concepts and quantitative reasoning.

We will reach these by applying the Statistics techniques we learn in this course to problems from a variety of disciplines. We will use ideas from College Algebra and Probability to solve our Statistics problems.
