MATH 405 - Probability and Statistics for Teachers
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: MATH 130 and MATH 154.
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.
