This is an introductory course in Probability and Statistics with more emphasis on theory.  Students will master standards that will allow them to distinguish between and calculate probabilities of dependent and independent events, define and apply conditional probability to problem solving, recognize the standard distributions and apply them in problem solving, calculate standard deviations of normal distributions and use various methods for organizing data.  This course will also provide opportunities to explore these standards in various career contexts, such as epidemiology, economics, and others.


Homework:  Minimum of 7 hours a week of math practice.  Additional time will be needed to study for tests, write essays, and work on projects.
