5.10. Math 263

MATH 263- Introduction to Statistics and BioStatistics (3 credits)

Description: Organizing data; distributions, measures of center and spread, scatterplots, nonlinear models and transformations, correlation, regression. Design of experiments: models from probability, discrete and continuous random variables, normal distributions, sampling distributions, the central limit theorem. Statistical inference; confidence intervals and test of significance, t procedures, inference for count data, two-way tables and chi-square procedures, inference for regression, analysis of variance.

Placement Level: ALEKS PPL score of 60-100% , SAT I MSS 640-800, ACT MATH 26-36, or UA Math 112, 120R, 122B, or 125 required for placement into this course.  Test scores expire after one year.

If my scores are lower than the Placement Level:  Math 100, then Math 112, although students should first complete their foundation math requirement before taking Math 263. 

Comments: Math 263 is not a prerequisite to other math courses.  This course is a more thorough treatment of statistics for majors in the College of Science, Physiology, and a few other majors. This course cannot be used as a prerequisite for any math courses. Recommended as a second semester course or later, after foundation math requirement has been completed.
