Aim of Course:

This course, the first of a 3-course sequence, provides an introduction to statistics for those with little or no prior exposure to basic probability and statistics. Its simulation/resampling approach (drawing numbers or data from a hat) demystifies the traditional formulas, demonstrating the fundamental basis for statistical inference. Topics covered include probability, the Normal distribution, hypothesis testing, independence, conditional probability, Bayes Rule, 2-way tables, random sampling, and confidence intervals. Once you have completed this course you will be able to apply statistically valid designs to basic studies, and test hypotheses regarding proportions and means.

Teaching statistics, especially AP statistics? The summer session of this course is especially suited to AP stats teachers who need to tune up their statistical skills.
