    NJIT Academic Integrity Code: All Students should be aware that the Department ofMathematical Sciences takes the University Code on Academic Integrity at NJIT very seriously

    and enforces it strictly. This means that there must not be any forms of plagiarism, i.e.,

    copying of homework, class projects, or lab assignments, or any form of cheating in quizzes

    and exams. Under the University Code on Academic Integrity, students are obligated to report

    any such activities to the Instructor.

    COURSE INFORMATION

    Course Description: Consider notions of probability. Topics include the binomial and normaldistributions, expected value, and variance. The notions of sampling, hypothesis testing, and

    confidence intervals are applied to elementary situations. Effective From: Fall 2011.

    Number of Credits: 3

    Prerequisites: None.

  • COURSE GOALS

    Course Objectives: The objective of this course is to acquaint students with basic conceptsand methods in statistics and probability and demonstrate real world applications using

    examples drawn from various fields. Topics to be covered include sampling, descriptive

    statistics, correlation and regression, notions of probability, binomial and normal distributions,

    estimation and hypothesis testing.

    Course Outcomes

    Demonstrate their understanding of various statistical terms, types of data, and data collectionmethodsEfficiently summarize, organize, and present dataEffectively compute measures of central tendency, position, and variation and interpret theresultsDemonstrate their understanding of notions of probability and distributionsPerform statistical analysis, such as estimation, hypothesis testing, correlation and regressionand draw conclusionsApply statistical reasoning to real world problems and make informed decisions

    POLICIES

    DMS Course Policies: All DMS students must familiarize themselves with, and adhere to, theDepartment of Mathematical Sciences Course Policies, in addition to official university-wide

    policies. DMS takes these policies very seriously and enforces them strictly.

    Grading Policy: The final grade in this course will be determined as follows:

    Homework 10%

    Quizzes 15%

    Midterm Exam I 20%

    Midterm Exam II 20%

    Final Exam 35%

    Your final letter grade will be based on the following tentative curve.

    A 90 - 100 C 65 - 74

    B+ 85 - 89 D 55 - 64

    B 80 - 84 F 0 - 54

    C+ 75 - 79

    Attendance Policy: Attendance at all classes will be recorded and is mandatory. Please makesure you read and fully understand the Math Departments Attendance Policy. This policy will

    be strictly enforced.

    Homework and Quiz Policy: Homework will be assigned every week. Either homework will be

  • collected or a quiz will be given in class.

    Exams: There will be two midterm exams held in class during the semester and onecomprehensive final exam. Exams are held on the following days:

    Midterm Exam I June 9, 2016

    Midterm Exam II June 23, 2016

    Final Exam July 18, 2016

    The final exam will test your knowledge of all the course material taught in the entire course.

    Make sure you read and fully understand the Math Department's Examination Policy. This policy

    will be strictly enforced.

    Makeup Exam Policy: There will be NO MAKE-UP EXAMS during the semester. In the event theFinal Exam is not taken, under rare circumstances where the student has a legitimate reason

    for missing the final exam, a makeup exam will be administered by the math department. In

    any case the student must notify the Math Department Office and the Instructor that the exam

    will be missed and present written verifiable proof of the reason for missing the exam, e.g., a

    doctors note, police report, court notice, etc., clearly stating the date AND time of the

    mitigating problem.

    ADDITIONAL RESOURCES

    Math Tutoring Center: Located in Cullimore, Room 214 (See: Summer 2016 Math TutoringHours)

    Further Assistance: For further questions, students should contact their instructor. Allinstructors have regular office hours during the week. These office hours are listed on the

    Math Department's webpage for Instructor Office Hours and Emails.
