Course MAT150: Business Statistics



Business Statistics

This course familiarizes students with the basic concepts of business statistics and provides a comprehensive overview of its scope and limitations. Students will examine statistical analysis of samples, compute the measures of location and dispersion, and interpret them for descriptive statistics. Lessons demonstrate linear regression, multiple regression, correlation analysis, model building, model diagnosis, and time series regression using various models. The course also describes basic concepts of probability and applies the discrete and continuous distributions of probability. Other topics in this course include constructing a hypothesis on one and two samples, performing one-way and two-way analysis of variance, applying nonparametric methods of statistical analysis, and making decisions under risk or uncertainty.

Prerequisites: Successful completion of Introductory and/or Intermediate Algebra courses is recommended before taking Business StaSpanics.
