Course Objectives: 

The aim of this course is to gain ability for the students to perform the applications of statistical analysis in daily and business life. Besides descriptive and inferential statistics, the course also includes sources of data; collecting, organizing, analyzing and draw conclusions of data. Most popular probability distributions are going to be faced required for inferential statistics and decision making. Frequency Distributions, Table and Graphs, Measures of Central Tendencies, Counting Technics, Tree Diagrams, Hypothesis Tests, Sampling are included in this course as well.

Course Content: 

Frequency Distributions, Table and Graphs, Measures of Central Tendencies, Discrete and Continuous Probability Distributions, Hypothesis Tests, Sampling topics are included in this course as well.

Course Methodology: 
1: Lecture, 2: Question-Answer, 3: Discussion, 4: Simulation, 5: Case Study
Course Evaluation Methods: 
A: Testing B: Presentation, C: Homework, D: Project, E: Laboratory
