Course Objectives  The aims of this course are to study common statistical techniques. The emphasis will be upon the understanding and use of statistical methodology, and the written communication of the results of data analysis. Students should gain practical experience in elementary data management and analysis techniques. Students will become knowledgeable and critical consumers of statistical information that appears in the media, in the workplace, and elsewhere. Upon completion of the course students should be able to use data to make recommedations and make infromed decisions regarding any process or phenomenon for which it is possible to collect data. Students will also gain basic familiarity with the statistical software package R.  
Textbook  Applied Statistics and Probability for Engineers, 6th ed., by D. C. Montgomery and G. C. Runger, Wiley, 2014 . This is the course text. I expect to cover Chapters 6–13; some in part, some whole.  
Learning Outcomes  After successful completion of the course, the student will be able to:  


Teaching Methods  Lecture slides that serve as a tartig point for class discussions with examples. Active tutorial sessions for engaged learning and continuous feedback on progress that involve real data, computer analysis, summary, interpretation and reporting.
