It improves skills in solving linear equations; graphing and interpreting linear models; and reading and applying formulas. It develops an understanding of numeracy and the real number system, including conversions between and calculations with fractions, decimals and percentages, necessary for successfully completing the Fundamental of Statistics course. A co-requisite course for those students who have not passed TSIA Math, to be taken in conjunction with Fundamental of Statistics. Prerequisites: MATH TSIA Score ; MATH TSIA Score and ABE Diagnostic Level of 5/6; or successful completion of MATH 0100 Co-requisites: Required Texts: PSYC 2613 Fundamental of Statistics Witte, R. S. & Witte, J. S. (2017). Statistics, Eleventh Edition, Hoboken, NJ, John Wiley & Sons, Inc. ISBN: (Paper Back), (epub) Scientific Calculator: any Student Learning Outcomes: Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: 1 Use appropriate symbolic notation and vocabulary to communicate, interpret, and explain statistical concepts. 2 Define, represent, and perform operations on real numbers, applying numeric reasoning to investigate and describe quantitative relationships between and within data. 3 Use algebraic reasoning to solve problems that require ratios, rates, percentages, and proportions in statistical contexts using multiple representations. 1 Program Learning Outcome # Alignment Core Curriculum Outcome Alignment
