MATH 405 - Probability and Statistics for Teachers


Description:
This course focuses on conceptual and procedural understanding of probability and statistics including probability, graphing, measures of center and spread, distributions, and confidence intervals. Concepts are taught from a problem solving perspective using appropriate technology. Course will be offered every year (Winter).

Prerequisites:
Prerequisites: MATH 130 and MATH 154.

Credits: (4)

Learner Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Read, interpret and make decisions based upon data from graphical displays, such as line graphs, box and whisker plots, histograms, bar graphs, dot plots and scatter plots.
  • Use and explain various ways to summarize, describe and compare distributions of numerical data in terms of shape center and spread.
  • Calculate and explain theoretical and experimental probabilities of simple and compound events, and understand why their values may differ for a given event in a particular experimental situation.
  • Apply statistical concepts and representations to model real world situations.  They will summarize data, make inferences and justify conclusions.
  • Use appropriate technology to investigate and represent concepts, methods and application of mathematical concepts.
  • Use principles of mathematical thinking and problem solving to explore, solve, generalize and prove mathematical problems.
