    Course Description:

    Most events/variables in nature, business, sciences and social environments tend to be random in nature. 

    Making sense of the world or predicting events or variables requires analysis of data under uncertainty.  Statistics is the science of making sense of the world or drawing inferences about the world through analysis of data.  This course covers the necessary tools to conduct statistical analysis of data.
