Course Description
This course is useful to employees who need to use and understand statistical techniques and/or data. The course gives students a "conversational" knowledge of statistics so they can understand the statistics in journal articles and reports, do some basic statistical calculations and analyses of their own, or listen to a statistician and understand what he or she is saying. The basic statistical principles and methods presented in the course can be applied in many fields including medicine, business, science, or other fields. The course serves as background material for APTI courses that require statistics, such as SI:426 "Analysis of Ambient Measurements" and classroom course 426 "Statistical Analysis for Ambient Measures".
