MATH 210 - Applied Statistics
Through practical application and exposure to a teamwork environment, this course provides students with a general understanding of the statistical techniques used in solving business problems, making managerial decisions and undertaking market research in a global and northern Canadian context. The goal is for the student to acquire skills to methodically gather, use, analyze, communicate, organize and interpret data for northern problems and challenges that can be found in various business contexts (e.g. all levels of government, research, not for profits, and private business).
Topics covered in this course include: graphical techniques for data and presentation, measures of central location and variability, probability, discrete and continuous probability distributions, sampling distributions, estimation, hypothesis testing, and inference about a population and comparing two populations. Students will learn how to apply knowledge gained in these areas using statistical computer applications.
