Mathematical Sciences 405/605

Statistical Methods and Probability II

Instructor: Calvin L. Williams, Ph.D.

Text: Linear Statistical Models : An Applied Approach by Bowerman and O'Connell.

Course Objective

This course is designed to continue with introductory probability and statistics at an intermediate level. Emphasis is placed on the understanding of the concepts of techniques in inferential statistics, data analysis, and regression analysis along with its appropriate application. This should prepare you for the practical application of regression and other modeling techniques in more general areas such as engineering, the sciences, education, and management. The intent is to cover the prescribed text omitting those sections that are unneeded with additional information given in the form of handouts and take home projects. Although there will be no requirement of a specific statistical computing package, it would be in your best interest to be familiar with a package. Examples shown in class will be done using Statistix and SAS. Notes are available for students wishing to use SAS.
