Data analysis, probability models, random variables, tests of hypotheses, confidence intervals, simple linear regression, and weekly labs using Minitab statistical software. Text: Utts and Heckard, Mind on Statistics, State University. ISBN 978-1-305-00929-5 1 Special Custom Edition for Michigan Lecture: M W 5:30pm – 6:50pm, 1281 Anthony Hall (ANH) The lectures are used to present basic ideas. STT 201 is a survey course of the most practical and commonly encountered statistical concepts and methods. The course is taught at an elementary mathematical level (college algebra). The textbook will be followed fairly closely. The course is divided into four units with a 50-minute exam following each unit: • Unit 1: Chapters 1-4, followed by exam on Wednesday, September 21 • Unit 2: Chapters 7-9, followed by exam on Wednesday, October 12 • Unit 3: Chapters 10-12, followed by exam on Wednesday, November 2 • Unit 4: Chapters 13-15, followed by exam on Wednesday, November 23 Each exam is worth 50 points. All four exams count toward course total. Laboratory: Laboratory meetings of Sections 107, 108, 109, 110, 112 are in 106 Farrall Hall (FAE). Laboratory meetings od Section 111 are in 216 Ernst Bessey (EBH) as follows: Lab Schedule Sec. 7 Th 12:40–2:30p Sec. 8 Th 3:00–4:50p Sec. 9 Th 5:00–6:50p Sec. 10 Th 7:00–8:50p Sec. 11 Th 10:20a–12:10p Sec. 12 F 10:20a–12:10p The laboratory instructors direct laboratory sections. Students will be using the statistical package Minitab which is installed on the lab computers. Students are required to become familiar with the basic commands of Minitab in order to access, store, create and analyze data. There will be 14 laboratory assignments each worth 10 points. A laboratory assignment is assigned at the beginning of each of 14 labs and posted on the course website. To facilitate start up directions, please arrive at your lab on time. The computer work can be completed during lab; students may finish their reports outside the lab hours and submit them using appropriate forms posted on the course website; submission of each lab is due by 8:00 am on Tuesday of the following week from the day of assignment. No late labs will be accepted. Two lowest lab scores will be dropped. Attendance: You are expected to attend all meetings of the class. If you must miss a class, plan to get notes for that day from a classmate. Be advised that schedule on Page 5 is tentative. 2 Note: All exams including a comprehensive final exam are multiple choice. The exams will contain questions concerning text material and problems, classroom examples and discussions and the use of a TI calculator. Missing an exam without a valid excuse presented to the instructor will result in a score of 0 points. Persons who must miss an exam because of medical or family emergency or other exceptional circumstances should present a valid excuse to Professor Pathak, in advance of the examination whenever possible. Dropping two lowest lab scores will accommodate those who for some reason must miss a lab. All students are expected to adhere to the University’s policy concerning academic integrity. It is covered in the Spartan Life booklet under General Student Regulations. For more information about this, please consult the handbook or visit the Spartan Life website at http://www.vps.msu.edu/SpLife/ Evaluation: Points are earned through four examinations (200 points), final examination (100 points), laboratory projects (120 points), in class work (50 points). In determining your total points, your two lowest lab scores will be dropped. Points Toward Grade Source Points Lecture Exams (4) 200 Lab Projects (best 12 of 14) 120 Final Exam 100 Class Work 50 Total 470 Your total number of points will be converted into a percentage and your grade will be determined by the following grading scale: 90 − 100%: 4.0 85 − 89%: 3.5 79 − 84%: 3.0 73 − 78%: 2.5 65 − 72%: 2.0 60 − 64%: 1.5 55 − 59%: 1.0 0 − 54%: 0 Disclaimer: The instructor reserves the right to make any changes he considers academically advisable.

It is highly recommended that you first address your queries to the lab instructor either by email or in person. Only in cases of some urgency, consider getting in touch with Dr. Pathak by email or in person.
