Students collect, analyze, and interpret data as they examine the role of statistical analysis and statistical terminology. Students also apply appropriate statistical techniques and analytical reasoning in real-world problems to communicate logical arguments and models. The course topics includes probability, statistics, and quantitative reasoning.

This undergraduate-level course is 5 weeks This course is available to take individually or To enroll, speak with an Enrollment Representative.
