A one‐semester mathematics elective course in statistics focusing on four main themes:
exploring and analyzing data; planning a study and experimental design; anticipating
patterns; and statistical inference.
Students will first understand the statistical concepts and methodologies. Then,
applications within Microsoft Excel software packages will be taught in order to
reinforce these ideas and also illustrate real‐world uses.
Course Standard
1. Students will be expected to critically analyze and draw appropriate conclusions
from data.
2. Students will be expected to communicate their conclusions by writing well‐defined,
complete sentences while using the appropriate statistical reasoning.
3. Students will be expected to produce data conducting surveys, experiments,
observational studies, and simulations.
4. Students will be expected to analyze data using graphical and numerical summaries.
5. Students will be expected to model data by studying probability, random variables,
and sampling distributions.
6. Students will be expected to draw conclusions using inference procedures such as
confidence intervals and significance tests.

Course Requirement
Be prepared for class with pencil, notebook, and book.
Be on task at the appropriate times.
Work with others in an appropriate manner.
Your contribution to class discussions is expected and appreciated.
Bring a scientific calculator to help perform simple calculations. ‐ Notebook
You need a notebook that is dedicated to statistics.
Notebooks should be handed in during every test. The teacher is looking for:
1. Organization
2. Homework (not just the answers but the WORK)
3. Please submit homework on BIG paper. Do not submit homework on small
sheets of paper. ‐ Homework
You can expect a homework assignment every day. Take notes, participate in class, the
homework will be a breeze.
Homework is your chance to test out, solidify, or ‘come to grips’ with what we’ve talked
about in class that day.
1. Read directions carefully
2. Write each separate assignment on a new sheet in your notebook.
3. MAKE HOMEWORK CORRECTIONS. Write them next to the original work, in the
margin, wherever. Try to underline your mistakes, so when you review for a test,
you’ll know what kind of thinking to avoid.
4. You will generally have between
5– 20 problems (or more) for homework. ‐ Tests
1. Occur every three to four weeks.
2. Test will cover ANY MATERIAL WE HAVE DISCUSSED IN CLASS. Don’t just assume
the test will only cover the ‘new’ material. Anything we’ve had thus far is fair
game to be included. Unless otherwise indicated, tests are closed book.
3. On your test, always circle the final answer.
4. Always round to two decimal places.(9.21; NOT 9.2)
5. Always show your work – if the answer is wrong you may still receive partial
credit for the correct procedure.
6. YOU MAY USE ELECTRONIC TRANSLATORS FOR A TEST. IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE
WITH VOCABULARY, ASK THE TEACHER FOR HELP.
7. CHEATING ON A TEST (OR HOMEWORK) RESULTS IN A GRADE OF ZERO FOR
THAT ASSIGNMENT FOR BOTH PARTIES. ALSO, IT WILL RESULT IN A MEETING
WITH THE JUDICIAL COMMITTEE, WHICH COULD LEAD TO SUSPENSION OR
DISMISSAL FROM OUR SCHOOL.
* If you have any questions, feel free to contact the teacher before or after class. It is
the goal to help each of you be successful students today and to provide you with the
tools and skills you will need to become successful students and/or citizens of the world
tomorrow!
