The main goal of the course is to highlight the general assumptions and methods that underlie all statistical analysis. The purpose is to get a good understanding of the scope, and the limitations of these methods. We also want to learn as much as possible about the assumptions behind the most common methods, in order to evaluate if they apply with reasonable accuracy to a given situation. Our goal is not so much learning bread and butter techniques: these are pre-programmed in widely available and used software, so much so that a mechanical acquisition of these techniques could be quickly done "on the job". What is more challenging is the evaluation of what the results of a statistical procedure really mean, how reliable they are in given circumstances, and what their limitations are.Login: guest_oclPassword: ocl

Includes an attached common course cartdridge for an Introduction to Statistics for Psychology course adapted by Paul C. Bernhardt, Ph.D. for a PSYC 301 course at Frostburg State University. The course is an adaptation of Learning Statistics with jamovi, A Tutorial for Psychology Students and Other Beginners (Navarro & Foxcraft, 2019) and a free and open-source statistical analysis package named jamovi (www.jamovi.org).

Introductory Business Statistics is designed to meet the scope and sequence requirements …

Introductory Business Statistics is designed to meet the scope and sequence requirements of the one-semester statistics course for business, economics, and related majors. Core statistical concepts and skills have been augmented with practical business examples, scenarios, and exercises. The result is a meaningful understanding of the discipline, which will serve students in their business careers and real-world experiences.

"Introductory Business Statistics with Interactive Spreadsheets - 1st Canadian Edition" is an adaptation of Thomas K. Tiemann's book, "Introductory Business Statistics". In addition to covering basics such as populations, samples, the difference between data and information, and sampling distributions, descriptive statistics and frequency distributions, normal and t-distributions, hypothesis testing, t-tests, f-tests, analysis of variance, non-parametric tests, and regression basics, the following information has been added: the chi-square test and categorical variables, null and alternative hypotheses for the test of independence, simple linear regression model, least squares method, coefficient of determination, confidence interval for the average of the dependent variable, and prediction interval for a specific value of the dependent variable. This new edition also allows readers to learn the basic and most commonly applied statistical techniques in business in an interactive way -- when using the web version -- through interactive Excel spreadsheets. All information has been revised to reflect Canadian content.

Introductory Statistics follows scope and sequence requirements of a one-semester introduction to …

Introductory Statistics follows scope and sequence requirements of a one-semester introduction to statistics course and is geared toward students majoring in fields other than math or engineering. The text assumes some knowledge of intermediate algebra and focuses on statistics application over theory. Introductory Statistics includes innovative practical applications that make the text relevant and accessible, as well as collaborative exercises, technology integration problems, and statistics labs.

This book is meant to be a textbook for a standard one-semester introductory statistics course for general education students. Our motivation for writing it is twofold: 1.) to provide a low-cost alternative to many existing popular textbooks on the market; and 2.) to provide a quality textbook on the subject with a focus on the core material of the course in a balanced presentation.

We hope readers will take away three ideas from this book in addition to forming a foundation of statistical thinking and methods.

(1) Statistics is an applied field with a wide range of practical applications.

(2) You don't have to be a math guru to learn from interesting, real data.

(3) Data are messy, and statistical tools are imperfect. However, when you understand the strengths and weaknesses of these tools, you can use them to learn interesting things about the world.

This resource was created at the University of Maryland (UMD) for instructors who want to teach, students (and instructors) who want to learn, and researchers who want to use R for statistical discovery and analysis. While this is a textbook, it is largely based on hands-on examples with video walk-throughs to take you through accessing R and RStudio, the basics of R and progressing to analyses with step by step templates and video support. The goal is to build confidence with programming early on and demonstrate best coding practices from the start.

In this class, students use data and systems knowledge to build models of complex socio-technical systems for improved system design and decision-making. Students will enhance their model-building skills, through review and extension of functions of random variables, Poisson processes, and Markov processes; move from applied probability to statistics via Chi-squared t and f tests, derived as functions of random variables; and review classical statistics, hypothesis tests, regression, correlation and causation, simple data mining techniques, and Bayesian vs. classical statistics. A class project is required.

This resource was created for Introduction to Statistics students at the University …

This resource was created for Introduction to Statistics students at the University of Maryland, and is designed to help you explore psychological theory, research, and practical applications of statistics. After completing this course in psychology, you will be able to:

- Explain how to use and interpret descriptive and inferential statistics in an ethically responsible way. - Describe the difference between descriptive (central tendency, dispersion, correlation) and inferential statistics (single, multiple, logistic), and know when to use each. - Demonstrate analytical skills by critiquing research and media claims. - Apply statistical concepts and methods in a way that improves your own academic, personal, and professional life.

Each module is structured around key prompts - Learning Objective Questions - and followed by the links to articles, videos, and interactive demonstrations you will need to answer those questions. After studying the readings, videos, and presentations you should be able to answer the learning objective questions in detail without any notes in front of you. If you practice doing that regularly, you are well prepared for any assessment that your instructor can give you!

This class introduces elementary programming concepts including variable types, data structures, and flow control. After an introduction to linear algebra and probability, it covers numerical methods relevant to mechanical engineering, including approximation (interpolation, least squares and statistical regression), integration, solution of linear and nonlinear equations, ordinary differential equations, and deterministic and probabilistic approaches. Examples are drawn from mechanical engineering disciplines, in particular from robotics, dynamics, and structural analysis. Assignments require MATLAB programming.
