Fundamentals of Statistics


with Peg Junge, Five Town CSD Adult & Community Education

This course (approximately 10 classes) is designed to prepare students for an introductory statistics course. College statistics is often difficult for students because the subject matter is unlike mathematics encountered in high school.  The goal of this class is to provide the necessary foundational concepts for success at the college level. We begin by reviewing basic decimal and percents skills. Subsequent topics include data collecting considerations, organizing data and representing it visually, comparing data in terms of range, mean, variance, and standard deviation, and basic probability topics. Instruction can be provided in-person or on Zoom.
