Summary

    Business Statistics: Course in a Box is a comprehensive online course that introduces students to key concepts and practices in business statistics. Engaging video lectures and detailed how-to videos guide students through the material, and assignments and quizzes help them build and test their knowledge.


    The course features six online learning units. Unit 1 presents students with an introduction to the field of statistics and provides them with information on critical calculations and sampling theory and techniques. In Unit 2, students become familiar with probability theory, including Venn diagrams, conditional theory, and Bayes’ law. Unit 3 focuses on discrete and continuous probability distributions and density functions, and Unit 4 presents the central theorem limit and its applications, including confidence intervals for and hypothesis tests of the population mean and proportion. In Unit 5, students learn to conduct hypothesis tests of the differences of means and proportions, the analysis of variance test for more than two populations, and the Chi-square test of independence. The final unit covers OLS regression analysis and the test of correlation.


    Providing students with an immersive and complete online learning experience, Business Statistics is ideal for foundational courses in the field.
