## Welcome to Statistics!

Statistics is not only a branch of mathematics, but it is an essential tool to understand the real world. Businesses use statistics to predict consumer demand for a specific product, where medical researchers use statistics to see if

a new cancer drug is effective. Politicians use statistics to survey the public for important information to help them win elections. In high schools and colleges, statistics is used to determine how many types of classes should be offered based on student needs. Statistics is applied to all walks of life, and without it, society would be lost in meaningless guesses and false assumptions. So, brace yourselves, STATISTICS.IS.EVERYWHERE!

In this class, students will learn to understand how data is used to make decisions concerning risk, social and consumer behavior, and quality control. At the end of this course, students should know how to 1) Organize data from looking at patterns and relationships; 2) Produce data to create authentic experiments using appropriate random sampling; and 3) Generate inferences by using probability and other statistical models.
