A course designed for students in all fields. Topics include organization of data, measures of central tendency, measures of variation, statistical inference, correlation along with some more advanced topics such as analysis of variance and simple/multiple regression. A graphing calculator is required for class, homework and testing. Classroom instruction and programs will be presented using a TI-84 Plus. This Honors course fosters high-achieving students' growth towards learning outcomes such as: problem solving, often with creative approaches; critical reading and original data analysis; forming judgments based on evidence; clear, persuasive research writing; oral presentation; and articulate reflection on personal growth. Honors courses are more likely to utilize student-driven active learning, emphasizing exploration and discovery, rather than the acquisition of specific knowledge; faculty might provide projects with no pre-determined conclusion, but with real-world application.
