### STAT Courses

- STAT 835P - Statistical Techniques - 3 hours
- An introduction to statistics for educational and sociological research. Will include descriptive statistics, normal
distribution, and an introduction to correlation, hypothesis testing, and analysis of variance.
- STAT 837P - Computer Analysis of Statistical Data - 3 hours
- Prereq: one introductory statistics course and one computer science course

The analysis of data taken from the social sciences. The computer will be a tool for the course.
- STAT 840 - Stochastic Modeling - 3 hours
- Prereq: STAT 441*

Methods quantifying the dynamic relationships of sequences of random events. Methods studied include markov chains, poisson,
renewal, branching, and queuing, and their many applications to real life situations.
- STAT 841P - Probability and Statistics - 3 hours
- Prereq: MATH 260*

Elementary probability theory and statistical applications.
- STAT 842P - Mathematical Statistics - 3 hours
- Prereq: either MATH 260* and STAT 441* OR STAT 345* and STAT 441*

A continuation of STAT 441/STAT 841P. The further mathematical development of special probability
densities, functions of random variables, sampling distributions, decision theory, point and interval estimators, hypotheses
testing, and covariance.
- STAT 881 - Statistical Inference I - 3 hours
- Prereq: STAT 441* or STAT 841P* or equivalent AND admission into the graduate program for a Master of Science in Education in Curriculum and Instruction

A continuation of STAT 441/STAT 841P. The further development of probability and distributions,
multivariate distributions, some special distributions, and limiting distributions.
- STAT 882 - Statistical Inference II - 3 hours
- Prereq: STAT 881* or equivalent

A continuation of STAT 881. The further development of statistical inference, maximum likelihood method,
sufficiency, optimal test of hypothesis, noncentral chi-square, multiple comparisons, regression problem, and test of
independence.
