Do you ever wonder what a curve on the test meant or why your favorite NFL player has “awesome stats”? The purpose of this introductory course in statistics aims to place numbers in context. Numbers give us data and often inform many of the decisions surrounding our society today. Your phone or electronic device right now is collecting data. As data and numbers become more prominent in our daily lives, it is important to understand some of the underpinnings of how they come together and affect not only us in the classroom but our world and overall society as well. This yearlong course will explore and analyze data, relationships between variables, randomness and probability, and different models to interpret and gather data.
