Course objective:       To enable the students to find and solve problems in business and economics
                        using selected statistical methods. See attached learning outcomes.

Vision statement for BSTAT3321

they will encounter in their is that students will become Students will be able to of statistical
Our vision for STAT3321 professional and personal lives.competent consumers perform basicinformation
analyses and to think critically when interpreting statistical results.

Learning outcomes for BSTAT3321

1. The student will be able to *evaluate verbal, numeric, and graphic descriptions of a data set.
2. The student will be able to select a simple random sample and to evaluate the role of randomness in
data collection (both sampling and experimentation). The student will restrict causal inferences to data
collected from experiments.
3. The student will be able to analyze probability problems by choosing and applying basic laws of
probability, computing and interpreting results.
4. The student will be able to distinguish between discrete and continuous random variables, find
binomial and normal probabilities using tables, and compute expected value and variance for a binomial
distribution. The student will be able to analyze binomial and normal probabilities.
5. The student will be able to analyze scenarios appropriate for the Central Limit Theorem and choose
6. The student will be able to set up, interpret and interpret confidence intervals for sample proportion.
the sampling distributions to find and calculate,probabilities for the sample mean and a population mean
and a population proportion and to determine sample sizes for given levels of confidence and margins
of error.
7. The student will be able to set up and test hypotheses about a population mean and a population
proportion and to interpret the results.
                                use a interpret simple linear regression models along with the usual
8. The student will be able to fit andsoftware package in order to perform appropriate statistical
10. The student will be able to select and justify appropriate statistical techniques for a given scenario.

 *For all topics, the student will be able to demonstrate knowledge and comprehension, for example by
defining the new terms in the topic and describing and restating the concepts covered in each topic.
The abilities to
apply, analyze, synthesize and evaluate are assumed to be hierarchal. In other words, the ability to
evaluate and synthesize presumes an ability to analyze and apply. Likewise the ability to analyze
presumes an ability to apply.

The course grade reflects the proportion of topics that the student masters.
