MA-900 Stat Tech: Bus/LibArts/Nur/Sci
Statistical methods and decision methods as they are applied to data. Testing of hypotheses, sampling, non-parametric methods, regression, correlations, analysis of variance, time series, and so forth. Computer programming may be used. (Not applicable toward Master of Science in Applied Math degree requirements.)
