Abstract

Statistics and Probability is written for foundation level students, specifically biological module students at the Centre for Foundation Studies, IIUM, who are taking Mathematics II as one of their core subjects. This book also intended for students who do not have a strong background in Mathematics. The only prerequisite for this text is knowledge of elementary algebra. The goal of Statistics and Probability has been to make the subject of Statistics interesting and accessible to a wide and varied audience. The applications in this book includes problem in health, business, education, entertainment, political science, psychology, history, transportation, physical sciences, travel and leisure. The content of this book covers topic such as Introduction to Statistics, Counting Rules and Probability, Discrete Probability Distributions, The Normal Distribution, Sampling Distribution, Confidence Interval and Introduction to Hypothesis Testing. The following features used in this book: • The explanation of statistical methods and concepts is clear, concise and easy to understand. • All-important selected worked examples presented clearly in a step by step approach. • Uses diagrams and tables frequently to help students understand the concepts and solve problems. • The questions at the end of each subtopic are constructed in such a way that the student will be able to test his understanding of, and apply the concepts learned to solved basic problems. • Review Exercises covering all the subtopics in the chapter are found at the end of each chapter. • The Appendixes provide students with sample examination questions, statistical formula, the binomial distribution table, the poisson distribution table, the standard normal distribution table, and the t-distribution table. • Sample Examination Question together with complete worked solutions included to help student in his revision and to assess his preparedness in facing the examination. The aim of this book is to stimulate students’ interest in statistics and help them to gain a firm understanding about statistical methods and concepts. We hope that this book will benefit both instructors and students at the foundation level in understanding statistical methods and concepts as well as preparing students for their examination.
