MTH
145 Cr. 4
Elementary
Statistics
An introductory course covering
fundamentals of modern statistical methods. Topics include descriptive
statistics, the binomial and normal distributions, estimation, and hypothesis
testing. The z, t, F and chisquare test statistics are introduced. Instruction
in computer use is included, and statistics software is used throughout the
course for analyzing data files and carrying out statistical procedures.
Prerequisite: MTH 050 or equivalent placement.
MTH 145and BUS
710 are MBA foundation courses.
MTH
305/505
Cr. 3
Statistical
Methods
A survey of statistical methods from the
point of view of how these methods are implemented with a standard statistics
software package. Topics include descriptive statistics, graphical methods,
tests of location, goodness of fit, simple and multiple regression, design of
experiments, ANOVA, multiple comparisons, chisquare tests. Both parametric and
nonparametric methods are treated. Computer use is an integral part of the
course. Prerequisite: MTH 145 or 250 or 341. Not applicable to a mathematics
major. May be applied only to mathematics and statistics minors. Offered Sem. I.

Cr. 3
Introduction to
Sampling
Methodology of simple random sampling,
stratified sampling, systematic sampling, cluster sampling, and multistage
sampling is developed and applications related to physical, social, and
biological sciences are given. Single and two variable estimation techniques are
discussed. Prerequisite: MTH 305/505 or 341. Offered Sem. I, oddnumbered years.
MTH

Cr. 3
Correlation and
Regression Analysis
An introduction to simple linear
regression, multiple regression, polynomial regression. Inferences,
appropriateness of model, model diagnostics/adequacy, difficulties in the
application of models are discussed. A computer package will be used. Course
participants will be involved with handson statistical applications and
consulting. Prerequisite: MTH 305/505 or 341. Offered Sem. I, evennumbered
years.

Analysis of
Variance and Design of Experiments
An introduction to single factor, and
randomized block designs in analysis of variance. Inferences, appropriateness of
model, model diagnostics/adequacy, difficulties in the application of models are
discussed. Design or structure of an experiment will be discussed. A computer
package will be used. Course participants will be involved with handson
statistical applications and consulting. Prerequisite: MTH 305/505 or 341.
Offered Sem. II, oddnumber years.
MTH
447/547
Cr. 3
Nonparametric
Statistics

theory and procedures for using distributionfree methods in data analysis.
Standard procedures, such as the Wilcoxon tests, KruskalWallis, KolmogorovSmirnov,
nonparametric confidence intervals, regression analysis, and powers of the tests
will be included. Computer programs will be used when appropriate. Prerequisite:
MTH 305/505 or 341. Offered Sem. II, evennumbered years.
