One semester course to provide necessary background for transfer level Statistics. Full resources from initial offerings at Los Medanos College, plus resources and discussions from our Spring 2011 faculty study group.

Collection Contents


This course is an accelerated course that prepares students for transfer-level Statistics. Algebra for Statistics covers core concepts from arithmetic, pre-algebra, elementary and intermediate algebra and descriptive statistics that are needed to understand the basics of college-level statistics. Topics include ratios, rates, and proportional reasoning, arithmetic reasoning using fractions, decimals and percents, evaluating expressions, analyzing algebraic forms to understand statistical measures, functions, use of linear and exponential functions to model bivariate data, use of logarithms, logarithmic scales and semi-log plots, graphical and numerical descriptive statistics for quantitative and categorical data. This course is designed for students who do not want to major in math, science, computer science, or business.

Lessons plans and curricula for two 4 hour sessions introducing conditional tables, explanatory/response variables, percentages/ratios, a new way of thinking and TinkerPlots. This week sets the stages for the rest of the semester. The focus is on student-centered learning through data exploration, opening one's mind to alternate ways of learning and on building community.

This collaboration project will engage a faculty team to review, enhance and extend the Algebra for Statistics course concept under development by Myra Snell and Tue Rust of Los Medanos College. The course is designed to incorporate the mathematical knowledge required for a transfer level Statistics course, typically incorporated within developmental math courses. Collaborating faculty will review lesson plans and observe videos of actual class time, add new ideas to the concepts under development at LMC, and can also adapt resources and practices for their own college context.
