College of Arts & Sciences (WARSC)
Statistics with Aviation Applications
This course is a study of basic descriptive and inferential statistics. Topics include types of data, sampling techniques, measures of central tendency and dispersion, elementary probability, discrete and continuous probability distributions, sampling distributions, hypothesis testing, confidence intervals, and simple linear regression.

Enable students to select and apply appropriate descriptive and inferential statistical techniques to analyze varying types of data, to defend the rationale for selection of the techniques, and to effectively communicate results of their analyses.

1. Construct, compute, and use appropriate graphical displays and numerical measures to make accurate conclusions about data.

2. Identify various discrete and continuous probability distributions, identify skewness and symmetry in a distribution, and compute appropriate parameters and probabilities associated with probability distributions including sampling distributions.

3. Explain the importance of randomness in sampling, select and apply appropriate sampling techniques.

4. Select and apply appropriate procedures to estimate parameters and test claims about parameters.

5. Given a set of data, choose appropriate software, use the software to analyze the data, and accurately interpret the output from the software.

6. Communicate the results of statistical analyses in a clear and concise manner.7. Be a critical consumer of statistics presented by the media and other sources. Accurately interpret the statistics presented, identify ways in which they might be subject to misinterpretation either intentional or unintentional, and apply ethics to the interpretation and presentation of statistics.

8. Apply the concepts addressed in the course to problem solving including problems related to aviation/aerospace.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
