Math 113 - Introduction to Applied Statistics


Calendar [PDF]
Schedule of exams. Study guides for exams can be found here. The PDF version includes the scheduled lecture material.
Check Your Grades
Check your grades throughout the semester and keep track of your progress in the course. You will need to use your NetID and password to access this.
Classroom Activities
Copies of the handouts, collected data, and other miscellaneous information regarding the classroom activities.
Technology Exercises
This contains the technology exercises for each chapter as well as the instructions and any additional data you'll need to answer the questions. Technology exercises are due the day of the exam and should be emailed to the instructor.
Statistical Demonstrations
This is a collection of websites that demonstrate statistical concepts. We will use some of these at different points during the semester.
Notes to Class
These are comments that come to the instructor's mind as he is grading papers. They will include common pitfalls or give hints to assigned projects.
Semester Project [PDF]
Group project where you decide upon your own topic and perform some inferential statistics. This project will occur during the second half of the semester.
Course Syllabus [PDF]
The course syllabus. There is also a shortened version [PDF] containing the highlights from the syllabus.
Grade Sheet [PDF]
Keep track of your scores.
Mathematical Notation [PDF only]
This is a sequence of five documents for you to create using your favorite full-featured word processor. The object is to learn to use proper notation and also learn some statistics along the way. Instructions and demonstration videos on how to use the Equation Editor are available. There are two graphs that you'll need to create using Minitab, instructions for creating the graphs are available.
Mathematical Software
Find links to some of the software that is available to use as a Richland student. You must be a current student to view this page as some of the software is licensed only for our students.
Video Series
There is a video tape series that presents much of the material we will be covering in an exciting, sometimes eccentric, manner. You may wish to watch these as a means of reinforcing what you've heard in class or read in your book.
Lecture Notes
These online lecture notes were written for an older edition of Triola's Elementary Statistics textbook and the section numbers may not match up exactly with our text.
Simulation
This is a project I wrote for an ICTCM short course in May 2002. It explains the different kinds of simulation and allows you to perform some simulations online. This corresponds to the material in chapter 11 of the text. This simulation requires MS Internet Explorer. The Javascript will not work with Netscape Navigator.
Hypothesis Testing Assessment
This page contains Flash animations to help you review the Hypothesis testing material. There are 30 definitions and 60 multiple choice questions available.
Analysis of Variance
Your printed textbook doesn't contain information on multiple regression or the two-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). This is a project I wrote for an ICTCM short course in August 2004. It explains the different types of ANOVA and allows offers different assessment techniques to help you learn and understand them.
TI-82 / TI-83 Programs and Instructions
Instructions for using the TI-82 or TI-83 graphing calculator.
Triola's Statistics Website
This is a link to Triola's website for the Essentials of Statistics book. You can find data sets, updated versions of Statdisk, and the formula card that comes with your textbook.
Skills Needed [PDF only]
This is a document that explains the skills and proficiences that you need coming into this course to be successful. If you don't have these skills then please talk to the instructor about the best course of action or additional resources to help bring yourself up to speed.
S137 Room Availability
Students often wonder when the classroom will be available for them to come and use the computers. This chart should help.
Information about Instructor
Information including office hours, education, interests, etc.

Note: All Internet access from within the College may be monitored. Using the Internet during exams is prohibited except when specifically instructed otherwise. I consider such usage to be cheating and as such is subject to the academic dishonesty policy of the College. I can identify web pages visited and who visited them.
