Catalog Course Description:
An introductory course on statistical thinking, modeling, analysis, and decision making. This
course covers a variety of topics including descriptive statistics, point and interval estimation,
hypothesis testing, regression analysis, analysis of variance, etc.
Course Outcomes:
By the end of the semester you will be able to:
 Summarize and interpret a dataset using descriptive statistics
 Estimate parameters of a distribution based on a random sample
 Construct confidence intervals for parameters of a distribution
 Make a decision about a population based on a random sample
 Predict a response variable based on one or more predictor variables
 Identify important factors influencing a response variable
 Determine a probability distribution of a population based on a random sample

There are several unscheduled quizzes and group activities during the semester.
Requests for re-grading exams/quizzes should be made within a week of returning exams.
Exams are comprehensive and closed-book. For exam I, II and III, students are allowed
to bring one, two, and three (double-sided) sheets for equations, respectively. There are
no constraints on the contents of the notes.
Homework is posted weekly along with solutions, but it is not graded.
Detailed information about group project can be found on T-square.
Academic Honor Code: It is your responsibility to get familiar with the Georgia Tech Honor
