Math-140 - Introductory Statistics ( Section 57930 ) - Rupa Sinha
|Course:||Introductory Statistics ( Section 57930 )|
I am Professor Rupa Sinha. I live in Valencia with my husband and twin boys. I am going to teach this Introductory statistics course this fall. I am very excited to teach you guys. This class is very different from regular math classes where you do certain type of problems and have one answer. This course is analysis based where we do analyze data and do meaningful calculations with the help of computer software. And after we will interpret those calculations in sentences and focus more on conceptual knowledge rather than calculation.
Attendance is the key in order to succeed in the class. So, try to make each single class.
This course is very well structured. You will find everything in your canvas shell. As I mentioned before this course is not like your typical math classes. You will have reading and writing assignments also like an English class.
We will cover Data analysis, Quantitative and categorical variables, sampling techniques, sampling distributions, probabilities, confidence intervals and hypothesis testing.
