71142 Principles of Statistics

Course Description

This course presents methods for organizing and summarizing information clearly and effectively using graphical displays and computational methods: Organizing data. Descriptive measures, probability concepts. Discrete Random variables, Normal distribution, and confidence Interval for one population mean. This course intended to give the student a firm understanding of and skills in descriptive statistics graphically and computationally, students are expected to have gained the knowledge and the ability to construct and identify the shapes distributions of the given data. Analyzing it and conclusions, besides knowing counting techniques, probability of deferent events , finding the probability of binomial, Poisson, Hyper- geometric, and normal distributions, At the end of the course students are expected to know how to estimate to one population mean.
