Text: Essentials of Statistics by Mario F. Triola, 4th ed.
ISBN-13: 978-0-321-64149-6
Credit Hours: 3
Calculator: TI 83/84
Prerequisites: MAT 101, 210 or two years of high school algebra
Catalog Description:
A study of elementary statistics for non-majors with an introduction to probability. Emphasis is placed on student understanding and interpretation of statistical data and computation using calculators and computers. Mathematics majors should take MAT 253
Rationale for Course: Statistics is the basic mathematical tool for drawing certainty from uncertainty. Public policy, the availability of new drugs, the development of new products, comparisons of teaching effectiveness, quality control in production, and even who gets the biggest contract in baseball are based on statistical analysis. The study of statistics develops a set of cognitive and technical skills which include thinking analytically, defining and solving problems, and collecting and analyzing and interpreting data. These understanding and skills are important in preparing students for a lifetime of learning and of service to God and others. This course helps college students understand the basic vocabulary and principles of statistics needed in order to skillfully discern truth in presentations of information.
Learning Objectives: Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
-correctly define and use statistical terms
-draw and interpret graphs of various types, including scatter plots
-compute measures of central tendency, dispersion and position
-use probability as a tool in statistical evaluation
-compute probabilities from a binomial probability distribution
-develop information from a normal probability distribution
-state and use the Central Limit Theorem
-make point and interval estimates
-test hypotheses
-compute correlation and regression
-explain how statistics are used in a variety of realistic situations
-evaluate statistical citations for correctness and completeness
Academic Integrity: Honesty and integrity are basic virtues expected of all students at Mississippi College. The Mississippi College Undergraduate Catalog lists the policies and penalties for plagiarism and cheating.
Disability Accommodation: If you need special accommodations due to learning, physical, psychological, or other disabilities, please contact the Counseling and Testing Center at
601.925.3354.
In order for a student to receive disability accommodations under Section 504 of the Americans with Disabilities Act, he or she must schedule an individual meeting with the Director of Student Counseling Servicesimmediatelyupon recognition of their disability (if their disability is known they must come in before the semester begins or make an appointmentimmediatelyupon receipt of their syllabi for the new semester). The student must bring with them written documentation from a medical physician and/or licensed clinician that verifies their disability. If the student has received prior accommodations, they must bring written documentation of those accommodations (example Individualized Education Plan from the school system).Documentation must be current (within 3 years).The student must meet with SCSface-to faceand also attend two (2) additional follow up meetings (one mid semester before or after midterm examinations and the last one at the end of the semester). Please note that the student may also schedule additional meetings as needed for support through SCS as they work with their professor throughout the semester. Note:Students must come ineach semesterto complete their Individualized Accommodation Plan (example: MC student completes fall semester IAP plan and even if student is a continuing student for the spring semester they must come in again to complete their spring semester IAP plan).
Student Counseling Services is located in Alumni Hall Room #4 or they may be contacted via email at HYPERLINK "mailto:rward@mc.edu" \t "_blank" rward@mc.edu. You may also reach them by phone at 601-925-7790.
Learning Environment: The method of instruction may include lecture, group problem solving, individual problem solving, demonstrations, quizzes and examinations. Each student is expected to have a copy of the text, a calculator ( TI 83/84 Plus), writing materials, and an open mind. Group work is allowed on homework. On tests and quizzes the work must be the student's own and no cheating will be tolerated.
Assessment: Assessment of the student's progress will be made through periodic examinations, quizzes, and the grading of other assignments as well as through classroom feedback. There will be three periodic examinations (100 points each), daily work (online quizzes on Mc Moodle and possibly worksheets for a total of 100 points), and a comprehensive final examination (100 points) for a total of 500 points. Grades will be assigned as follows:
Total Points Earned Grade
450-500 A
400-449 B
350-399 C
300-349 D
Below 300 F
Absences: A student will automatically receive a course grade of F immediately upon accumulating 4 absences in a class that meets once a week (excused or unexcused). Please remember that three tardies constitute one unexcused absence. Also, note that students are responsible for material and assignments when absent.
Note: The last day to drop a course this semester is Friday, October 25. Students cannot withdraw after that date with a W (passing) unless the three following criteria are met:
1) extenuating circumstances (clearly outside the students control)
2) passing the course at the time of withdrawal
3) does not have excessive absences at the time of withdrawal
Make-up Work
If you miss a test because of illness, a written reason must be provided. If one test is missed, the final exam will replace the test grade. If a second test is missed, the grade will be a zero. Quizzes cannot be made up. Late homework will have a 20% penalty.
