Math 01.517 Engineering Probability and Statistics 3 s.h.
Students in this course will be introduced to various mathematical and statistical models and techniques for analyzing data. This will include summarizing data; using probability distributions to model processes; using interval estimation for population parameters based o sample data; designing and performing tests about population parameters based on sample data; identifying and applying regression models that describe the relationship between a dependent variable and one or more independent variables.
Students in this course will become familiar with various mathematical models and statistical techniques of analyzing data.
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
