What is Statistics?

Statistics is the science of collecting, studying, interpreting, and analyzing data.  People use statistics in order to determine the validity of claims that have been made.  Statistics are also used to determine characteristics of a population based upon a sample of the population.

In this course, we will study statistical tests that can be used on sets of data.  We will learn how samples are chosen from a population and how a statistical study is done.  Students in this course may earn dual credit through the University of Central Missouri.
