and give examples of a parameter and a statistic Demonstrate and differentiate the use of Greek letters and English letters which are used for parameters and statistics W999 Present the various methods of depicting data and the statistical measures utilized in descriptive statistics Organize data into a grouped frequency table Present data in the form of histograms stem and leaf diagrams and box and whisker plots Interpret histograms line graphs bar graphs pie charts and stem and leaf diagrams Use formulas to calculate the following measures of central tendency Mean median mode and midrange Demonstrate understanding of the mean median and mode Use formulas to calculate the following measures of dispersion range variance and standard deviation Demonstrate and understanding of

a Use the basic de nitions to calculate simple probabilities b Use the addition rule to calculate probabilities c Use the multiplication rule to calculate probabilities d Demonstrate an understanding of how events are complementary and calculate the probability that an event does not occur e Use counting principles to determine the number of ways various events can occur Develop the concepts of probability distributions a Explain discrete and continuous random variables b Discuss the concept of probability distributions c Use formulas to calculate the mean variance standard deviation and expected value of a probability distribution d Calculate probabilities in binomial experiments e Calculate the means standard deviation and variance of a binomial experiment f Recognize and identify various shapes of probability distributions g Demonstrate knowledge of the relationship between probability and the area under a probability curve Describe the normal distribution and associated statistics and probabilities a Calculate probabilities using the standard normal distribution b Calculate zscores that correspond with observations in nonstandard normal distributions c Calculate the scores that correspond to given probabilities 3 1 139 VI Use the normal distribution to approximate probabilities associated with a binomial experiment and know the conditions for which these approximations are appropriate De ne sampling distribution Identify and use the Central Limit Theorem Develop the concepts of point estimates and interval estimates and present methods for determining sample size a Fquot O VII a c d e VIII Estimate the value of a population mean and determine con dence intervals for a population mean Estimate the value of a population proportion and determine con dence intervals for a population proportion Calculate the sample size necessary for each of the above estimates given the desired con dence Present the process of hypothesis testing regarding one

proportion Perform a Chisquare goodness of t test Explain the concepts of regression and correlation and compute the necessary values to analyze the data and make predictions a b c d e Construct and analyze scatter diagrams Calculate the linear correlation coef cient and use this to decide whether a linear relationship exists between two variables Find the equation of a regression line between two variables Sketch the graph of the regression line Analyze the variation between predicted and observed values General Education The student should a b c Demonstrate the ability to select and apply
