  • Discuss the value of statistical information in a variety of business disciplines and work environments.
  • Assess statistical information portrayed in the media, work and educational environments.
  • Organize and analyze quantitative data.

  • Use graphical techniques to present data in such a manner that it is understood by and meaningful to colleagues and clients.
  • Analyze data presented in frequency distributions, histograms and boxplots.
  • Apply the common rules of probability to evaluate business alternatives.
  • Analyze and calculate probabilities for Binomial, Poisson, Uniform and Exponential probability distributions.
  • Calculate expected values and standard deviations for random variables.
  • Construct and interpret a confidence interval estimate for a single population mean using both the standard normal and t distributions.
  • Establish and interpret a confidence interval estimate for a single population proportion.
  • Determine the required sample size for estimating a single population mean or proportion.
  • Carry out an appropriate hypothesis test on a single population mean or proportion.
  • Interpret the p-value of the test statistic.
  • Carry out a hypothesis test comparing two population means or proportions.
  • Construct a contingency table and perform a chi squared test of independence.
