Course Description:
Statistics and Probability is a course designed to give students an introduction to statistics/probability concepts they will
likely see in future study. Statistics is the science of conducting studies to collect, organize, summarize, analyze, and draw
conclusions from data. Data sets will relate to a variety of fields, from business and sports to entertainment and political
science. Probability is the study of odds of events occurring. Students will work individually as well as with their
classmates, and both written and verbal communication will be emphasized.
