Statistics (I) is a series of two-semester course at undergraduate level and is designed to give students a basic knowledge and understanding of statistical methods particularly with applications in the fields of business and economics. The focus of this course is on descriptive statistical measures, probability distributions, hypothesis testing, ANOVA, basic regression models and forecasting.

The aim of this course is to develop critical reasoning skills necessary to understand, interpret, and draw conclusions from the abundant quantitative data available in the real world. This course emphasizes statistical thinking rather than computational details and is intended to get students familiar with organizing and describing data, as well as with basic statistical reasoning and tools for data analysis. At the end of the semester a student should be able to acquire skills of effectively communicating the results of statistical analyses through graphical and verbal means and intelligently assess much of the research literature in his or her own particular field. Also, a student should be able to apply the statistical techniques presented in the course to his or her own research projects, and expect to acquire facility with approaching and solving practical problems and analyzing data using statistical reasoning.

1.Students are required to preview the chapter before each class.
2.Absolutely no make-up quiz and exam unless you encounter extremely emergent situations.
3.Your final grade will be based on the grading policy. Absolutely no other alternative for extra credits.
