Structure: Three credits. Three lecture hours per week (45 total contact hours). Fundamental principles in the design and analysis of engineering experiments: randomized blocks, latin squares, split plots, factorial experiments; fractional factorials; confounding and response surface methodology. This course is primarily designed for majors in Industrial Engineering (IE); however, it is appropriate for science and engineering students with background in statistics and interest in the character
Statistics - an intuitive introduction : central tendency
Statistical data have a tendency to cluster around some central point. How do we determine this point? Is there just one way of doing it or more than one?
Statistics - an intuitive introduction : graphical display
Different ways of displaying data: boxplots, histograms and distributions.
Statistics - an intuitive introduction : introduction
Things you need to know before looking at the statistics courses here.
Statistics - an intuitive introduction : normal distribution
One of the most common statistical distributions is the normal distribution. What does it tell us and how do we use it?
Statistics - an intuitive introduction : standard deviation
A standard way of measuring statistical variability: standard deviation and the associated concepts of variance and degrees of freedom.
Statistics - an intuitive introduction : summation sign
Understanding the summation sign: what does it do … why does it exist?
Statistics - an intuitive introduction : variability
Statistical data vary: range and inter-quartile range measure this. Are they good measures?
Introduction to Applied Statistics

Finding information in mathematics and statistics
This unit will help you to identify and use information in maths and statistics, whether for your work, study or personal purposes. Experiment with some of the key resources in this subject area, and learn about the skills which will enable you to plan searches for information, so you can find what you are looking for more easily. Discover the meaning of information quality, and learn how to evaluate the information you come across. You will also be introduced to the many different ways of organ

What Is Statistics? Using historical anecdotes and contemporary applications, this introduction to the series explores the vital links between statistics and our everyday world. The program also covers the evolution of the discipline.'
This Web site contains a recent report on cancer statistics prepared by the American Cancer Society (ACS) that uses incidence data from the National Cancer Institute and mortality data from the National Center for Health Statistics. The report offers "an up-to-date perspective on the occurrence of cancer" in the United States, including cancer frequency, incidence, mortality, and survival statistics for 2003. The Web site provides links to similar articles, the PubMed citation for the report and
This course covers population and variables; Standard measures of location, spread and association; Normal approximation; Regression. Probability and sampling: Binomial distribution. Interval estimation; Some standard significance tests.
Students will gather statistical information on countries in Europe and Russia from almanacs. The information will be recorded in a chart. Students will then take the information and make line or bar graphs. Students will analyze the information by answering higher level thinking questions.
Robert Niles, a journalist and producer for the LA Times, created this site to help other writers learn the basics of statistics. He explains many key concepts that are essential to report accurate, meaningful numbers and facts. After starting with the fundamentals of mean, median, and percent, Niles goes on to describe more advanced topics like normal distribution, margin of error, and data analysis. For each section, an example or two are provided to demonstrate proper usage of the techniques.
The goals of the Statistics Online Computational Resource (www.SOCR.ucla.edu) are to design, validate and freely disseminate knowledge. Specifically, SOCR provides portable online aids for probability and statistics education, technology based instruction and statistical computing. SOCR tools and resources include a repository of interactive applets, computational and graphing tools, instructional and course materials. The core SOCR educational and computational components include: Distribution
Online Statistics: An Interactive Multimedia Course of Study is an introductory-level statistics book. The material is presented both as a standard textbook and as a multimedia presentation. The book features interactive demonstrations and simulations, case studies, and an analysis lab.
The relative frequency histogram is one of the standard ways for statisticians to present data. As a skeleton for the distribution curve, learn how to divide data into intervals, set boundaries, recognize outliers, figure out the range, and interpret frequency histograms.(01:28)
In NASA CONNECT, Team Extreme: The Statistics of Success, focuses on NASA's Space Operations Mission Directorate and the teamwork required to produce a successful space mission. Students will learn about the numerous systems, skills and capabilities involved in a mission and how NASA manages and integrates these systems. Students will draw a parallel between the teamwork used in a NASA mission and find out how teamwork energizes the popular sport of auto racing. Grades 6-8.
In NASA CONNECT Dressed for Space, students learn about the suits astronauts wear in space and why sizing is critical for working in space. They learn how the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo space suits were developed. Building on past space suit technologies, NASA engineers and researchers use functions and statistics to create the next generation of space suits for the International Space Station and beyond.
