Text: Charles Henry Brase, Corrinne Pellillo Brase: Understandable statistics, 7th Edition, Houghton Mifflin Company 2003..
Course Content:
(Prerequisite: MAT 103 or Mathematics Placement Test with a 200-level recommendation) This course presents basic concepts of descriptive statistics: random variables, random sampling, histograms, central tendency measures, variance and standard deviation, probability rules, and the correlation coefficient. The most important probability distributions, the binomial and the normal one, are introduced. Inferential statistics and sampling distributions are briefly covered in order to introduce statistical model building and linear regression analysis.
Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this class, students should
be able to analyze, prepare, and present data using statistical methods of descriptive statistics and Excel,
understand the basic concepts of Statistics and Probability,
be able to interpret and critically evaluate statistical information, be able to understand its significance, and be aware of ways to misinterpret them,
be able to communicate both concepts and methods verbally and formally.
Calculator Policy:
We will use Excel to analyze and present data.
Student Responsibilities:
You are expected to read the material to be covered prior to coming to class. Write down questions and ask them during class. Attend class, work on the homework problems. Ask questions as soon as you have difficulties understanding something. Contact me as soon as problems occur. If you miss a class, you are expected to find out (by contacting me, for instance) which material was covered and which announcements were made during class.
Participation:
At the end of every week I grade your participation in class during the week. Contributing to the class discussion, asking relevant questions, sending me links to internet articles relevant to what we do, preparing something to share, helping your neighbors during hands-on parts will increase your score while violating the class rules may dramatically lower it. At the end, the participation score will be the average of all weekly participation scores.
Homework:
Homework will be assigned on a weekly basis. It will be collected each Thursday, part of it will be graded, and it will be returned on Monday. No late homework will be allowed, except in cases of medical conditions.
Projects:
You will work on several in-class projects during class time. Some of these projects will be collected and graded.
Group Writing Project:
You have to finish one group writing project during the semester. Groups of 2 or 3 are allowed. The task is to discuss a statistical problem and its solution in a coherent and understandable way. A list of writing topics can be found at the class homepage. A oral presentation of the findings is also part of the project. Before starting on a project, you have to talk to me---not all topics are appropriate for everyone.
Midterm, Final:
We will have a midterm exam and a final exam.
Attendance:
Regular attendance is required. If you are late or leave early you are regarded as non-attendant. You may lose points counting towards your total grade according to the followings scheme:
0 - 2 classes missed unexcused: no change.
for each further class missed: subtract 5% from your score.
Grading Scheme:
At the end of the semester, you will receive a score from 0 to 100%, based on the following:
homework: 10 %
participation: 15%
projects: 20 %
writing project: 10 %
midterm exam: 15 %
final exam: 30 %
nonattendance may lower your score as described above.
Final grades will be determined as follows:
A: 93 - 100 %
A-: 90 - 92.9 %
B+: 87 - 89.9 %
B: 83 - 86.9 %
B-: 80 - 82.9 %
C+: 77 - 79.9 %
C: 73 - 76.9 %
C-: 70 - 72.9 %
D+: 67 -69.9 %
D: 63 - 66.9 %
D-: 60 - 62.9 %
F: below 60 %
Cheating and Plagiarism will not be tolerated, see the attached official Franklin Colleges Statement on Cheating and Plagiarism (page 169 of the Academic Catalog 2005-2006.)
Statement on Cheating and Plagiarism
A student whose actions are deemed by the College to be out of sympathy with the ideals, objectives or the spirit of good conduct as fostered by the College and Swiss community, may be placed on Disciplinary Probation or become subject to dismissal from the College. Cheating is a dishonest action out of sympathy with the ideals, objectives and spirit of the College. Cheating reflects negatively on ones personal integrity. Cheating is unjust to those students who have studied.
Consequently, the College has adopted the following code:
When an examination is in progress, all unauthorized books, notes, papers and notebooks must be left outside the classroom, or, where this is not feasible, left beneath the students seat unopened.
So far as logistically possible, students will be asked to distribute themselves around the room during an exam so as to leave the widest possible space between them.
During the examination only the blank paper required for the examination and a pencil, pen or other tools as permitted by individual instructors may be on the desk.
Should an instructor see written crib notes in evidence during an exam, the presumption will be that the student is using those notes for cheating on an exam.
If a student must leave the classroom during an examination due to physical duress, the student must turn in the exam and will not be allowed to return during the examination period. No make-up examination will be administered.
It is within the prerogative of the instructor to take a students paper during an exam and to ask that student to take an oral exam, or another exam, at the instructors choice.
A student found cheating will be reported to the Dean of the College and may be called before the Student Appeal and Grievance Hearing Board for further disciplinary action.
A student found cheating on an exam will be given an F for that examination. If it is a final examination, the student may be given an F for the course.
A student whose paper or assignment has clearly been plagiarized will receive an F for that paper. Notification will be sent to the Dean of the College. A second offense in that, or any other, course may result in dismissal from the College.
Cases of academic dishonesty may be handled by the instructor in whose course the violation occurred if the matter is a result of student ignorance or is a first offense. The instructor will assess the severity of the violation and impose an appropriate penalty. In the event of a repetition of dishonesty, the matter will be referred to the Dean of the College, and the student will risk expulsion from the College.
