Course Description:
This class provides students with a good background of statistical ideas and reasoning
rather than statistical methods. In this class students learn many of the fundamental
principals that underlie collecting data, organizing it, and making conclusions from it.

Course Objectives:
To give you the opportunity to learn statistical tools that you can use to systematically
improve the quality of your work and personal lives, at the present time and in the future.

Examinations: Tests and Quizzes
1. There will be three 80-minute tests.
2. There will be three 30-minute quizzes.
3. Tentative dates for the tests and quizzes are as follow:
Quiz 1: May 13          Test 1: May 20
Quiz 2: May 27          Test 2: June 10
Quiz 3: June 10         Test 3: June 17
4. All exams are closed book, closed notes. However, you are allowed to have one
page (with size 8.5x11, double-sided) of notes and formulae for each exam. I will
provide all the tables that you will need in the exam.

Homework: Homework problems will be assigned at the end of each chapter. It is the
responsibility of the student to keep current. Although homework will not be collected, it
is the best way to prepare for quizzes and tests.

Quiz average 25%                 Three tests will count 25% each
That is, final score = quiz average + 0.25*(test1 + test2 + test3) + extra
where quiz average = (quiz1 + quiz2 + quiz3) / 3
extra = extra credit from attendance
and maximum final score is 102 because
maximum quiz average = (25+25+25) / 3 = 25
maximum test score = 0.25 * (100 + 100 + 100) = 75
and if you get extra = 2
I will keep every possible decimal places until final score is calculated; then
it will be rounded to have only two decimal places.

Letter grade assignments are determined as follows (after rounding to second decimal
place):
A = 93 or above B = 83-86.99 C = 73-76.99              D = 63-66.99
A- = 90-92.99      B- = 80-82.99 C- = 70-72.99        D- = 60-62.99
B+ = 87-89.99 C+ = 77-79.99 D+ = 67-69.99               F = below 60
** There is no curving of grades in this course.
