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.
