Course Description:

In this introductory statistics course students will be introduced to the fundamental techniques for using sample data to make inferences about populations. We will begin with developing the necessary probability framework and statistical intuition before moving to the specific procedures for statistical inferences from large and small samples, single and multiple linear regressions, and measuring correlation.

*Academic credit is defined by the University of Pennsylvania as a course unit (c.u.). A course unit (c.u.) is a general measure of academic work over a period of time, typically a term (semester or summer). A c.u. (or a fraction of a c.u.) represents different types of academic work across different types of academic programs and is the basic unit of progress toward a degree. One c.u. is usually converted to a four-semester-hour course.
