This module provides a suggested syllabus for teaching the Collaborative Statistics (col10522) curriculum.

Course description

Elementary Statistics is an introduction to data analysis course that makes use of graphical and numerical techniques to study patterns and departures from patterns. The student studies randomness with emphasis on understanding variation, collects information in the face of uncertainty, checks distributional assumptions, tests hypotheses, uses probability as a tool for anticipating what the distribution of data may look like under a set of assumptions, and uses appropriate statistical models to draw conclusions from data.

The course introduces the student to applications in engineering, business, economics, medicine, education, the sciences, and other related fields. The use of technology (computers or graphing calculators) will be required in certain applications.

Materials

Required Calculator: The TI-83 calculator is required. There are many examples that use the TI-83 calculator and contain the calculator instructions. YOU WILL BE TAUGHT HOW TO USE THE CALCULATOR IN THE COURSE LESSONS.

Throughout the course, you will be given instructions for the TI-83 Calculator. Labs and projects make use of the TI graphing calculator and may be done individually or in groups of up to four.

Please download the TI-83 calculator guidebook from this TI-83 Site. Follow the links for "TI-83 Plus Silver Edition" OR "TI-83 Plus" and use the "Guidebooks" link.

You can review a number of TI-83 resources at http://cnx.org/content/m17581/latest/ or review the video tutorials online ( Part 1 , Part 2 ).

Other calculators: ti-86 or ti-89

You may use the TI-86 or TI-89 calculator if you have one, but you must have the programs loaded into it from the following TI-86 or TI-89 Web pages.

Download the TI-86 Calculator Instructions and follow the following links:

  • TI-86 Advanced Statistics Program
  • Advanced Statistics Guide infstat1.86g
  • Collaborative Statistics: Workbook has many TI-86 calculator instructions in it.

Download the TI-89 Calculator Instructions and follow these links:

  • Statistics with List Editor.
  • Find "Get the Statistics with List Editor App!" and "Statistics with List Editor Guidebook."

Homework and suggested grading

The purpose of homework is to help you learn the material in the course. You learn the most and do your best if you do the homework problems. You are expected to do the chapter PRACTICE in the workbook before attempting the homework. The answers to the Practice are in the back of the workbook. Then do the assigned odd numbered homework problems in the text and check those answers in the back of the text.

Homework Total Points Lowest Points (out of 700) for: Percentage
