## Statistics Course Descriptions

### STAT 100 Pre-Statistics

Units: 4

Hours: 54 hours LEC; 54 hours LAB

Prerequisite: MATH 30 with a grade of "C" or better, or equivalent skills demonstrated through the assessment process.

This course prepares students for transfer-level Statistics. Topics include computational mathematics needed for statistics: ratios, rates, and proportional reasoning; arithmetic with fractions, decimals and percents; evaluating expressions, solving equations and inequalities, and analyzing formulas to understand statistical measures; introduction to statistical terminology and use of statistical symbols; introduction to probability, venn diagrams, set theory and two-way statistical tables; graphical and numerical descriptive statistics for quantitative and categorical data; use of linear and exponential functions to model bivariate data. Note: This course is not intended as preparation for the PreCalculus/Trigonometry courses required for students as part of their pathway to science, computer information science, engineering, or mathematics.

#### Student Learning Outcomes

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

SLO 1: READ, EVALUATE AND CONVERSE USING BASIC STATISTICAL TERMINOLOGY.

### STAT 300 Introduction to Probability and Statistics

Units: 4

Hours: 54 hours LEC; 54 hours LAB

Prerequisite: MATH 120, MATH 125, or STAT 100 with a grade of "C" or better, or equivalent skills demonstrated through the assessment process.

Transferable: CSU; UC

CID: C-ID MATH 110

This course is an introduction to probability and statistics. Topics include: elementary principles and applications of descriptive statistics, elementary probability principles, probability distributions, estimation of parameters, hypothesis testing, linear regression and correlation, and ANOVA. Scientific calculators with two-variable statistics capabilities may be required.

#### Student Learning Outcomes

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

SLO 1: ORGANIZE, DISPLAY, DESCRIBE AND COMPARE REAL DATA SETS.

### STAT 480 Introduction to Probability and Statistics - Honors

Units: 4

Same As: HONOR 393

Hours: 72 hours LEC

Prerequisite: MATH 120 or 125 with a grade of "C" or better, or equivalent skills demonstrated through the assessment process.

Enrollment Limitation:

Enrollment is limited to Honors Program students. Details about the Honors Program can be found in the Cosumnes River College Catalog.

Transferable: CSU; UC

This course is an introduction to probability and statistics designed for students in the honors program. Topics include elementary principles and applications of descriptive statistics, counting principles, elementary probability principles, probability distributions, estimation of parameters, hypothesis testing, linear regression and correlation, and ANOVA. Scientific calculators with two-variable statistical capabilities may be required for this class. This honors section uses an intensive instructional methodology designed to challenge motivated students. This course is the same as HONOR 393 and only one may be taken for credit.

#### Student Learning Outcomes

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

SLO 1: ORGANIZE, DISPLAY, DESCRIBE AND COMPARE REAL DATA SETS.

### STAT 495 Independent Studies in Statistics

Units: 1 - 3

Hours: 54 - 162 hours LAB

Prerequisite: None.

Transferable: CSU

An independent studies project involves an individual student or small group of students in study, research, or activities beyond the scope of regularly offered courses. See the current catalog section of "Special Studies" for full details of Independent Studies.

#### Student Learning Outcomes

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

SLO #1: Actively engage in intellectual inquiry beyond that required in order to pass a course of study (College Wide Learning Outcome – Area 4).
