MAT* E092 StatwayTM I (Part 1 of a 2-Part, Full-Year Course, offered only in Fall semester)

StatwayTM Sequence- The StatwayTM sequence is a unique, one-year course recommended for students enrolled in degree programs that require no mathematics beyond freshman-level statistics. Students will use mathematical and statistical tools to explore real life data in a participatory learning environment. StatwayTM I is offered in the Fall and StatwayTM II in the Spring. Both courses must be taken in the same academic year to receive credit for college level statistics. StatwayTM I is the first course in the two-semester StatwayTM course sequence. StatwayTM I topics include an introduction to data analysis, statistical studies, sampling, experimental design, descriptive statistics techniques, scatterplots, correlation and regression, modeling data with functions, linear and exponential functions, and probability. This course requires the use of statistical technology.
