Course Description:

Business Statistics introduces students to elements of statistical concepts, techniques, and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data as applied in business. The course focuses on the student as a user and producer of statistics to inform and support decision making in business with emphasis on the use of business-oriented computer statistical instruments. Students are exposed to four broad concepts: (1) Exploring Data: Describing patterns and departures from patterns (2) Sampling and Experimentation: Planning and conducting a study (3) Anticipating Patterns: Exploring random phenomena using probability and simulation (4) Statistical Inference: Estimating population parameters and testing hypotheses

Students who successfully complete the course will learn how to use spreadsheets to determine and apply the correct procedures to use in a given business situation; interpret the meaning of confidence intervals in context; interpret the results of hypothesis tests; and make an informed decision, based on the results of inferential procedures.* This course satisfies one semester of the UC a-g College Admission Requirement for Mathematics, and one semester of UC a-g Elective Credit, if students earn a grade of C or higher. This course is currently taught by Mrs. Cari Goodwin
