MATH 105: Elementary Probability and StatisticsSummer 2016 Course Syllabus

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.

All students must familiarize themselves with and adhere to the Department of Mathematical

Sciences Course Policies, in addition to official university-wide policies. The Department of

Mathematical Sciences takes these policies very seriously and enforces them strictly.
