STAT 300 Home Page
The main goal of a statistics course is to make you an "informed consumer" of information. Everything from what's on TV, the medicines you take, even how much you pay for your insurance is influenced by statistics: gathering data, organizing it and making predictions about the population as a whole. This course offers you a new perspective on information--its sources and its reliability. Welcome to a new view of the information around you!
This website is intended as an external introduction to the course for online students prior to the start of the semester.
During the semester, students will find all textbook and course materials at one central course website:
MyMathLab (www.mymathlab.com) for online homework & other course resources
