Mission Statement: Azusa Pacific University is an evangelical Christian community of disciples and scholars who

seek to advance the work of God in the world through academic excellence in liberal arts and professional programs

of higher education that encourage students to develop a Christian perspective of truth and life.

Course Description: This is an elementary course in basic statistical concepts. Students are introduced to the

understanding and use of necessary computational procedures to attain the basic skills in the following: frequency

distributions, graphs, central tendency, variability, normal curve, probabilities, correlation, hypothesis testing, and chi

square. Understanding and use of the above statistics are stressed over mathematical development.

Required Textbook

Understanding Statistics in the Behavioral Sciences by Robert R. Pagano (8th, 9th or 10th edition, ThomsonWadsworth, ISBN: 0-495-09638-5)

Other Material

Youll want to have some type of calculator. Some have statistical functions (usually the ones with lots of buttons)

that you might find very useful. But on the other hand, you might want to use just a simple one and not worry about

how to use the special functions. For this class you wont need to do more than add, subtract, multiply, divide,

square, and take the square root.

You can use Microsoft Excel for many statistical computations. You can use it for both the homework and the tests

if you so desire. For the homework, youll need to put the Excel table into a Word document. For the tests, youll

need to send me a copy of the Excel file by e-mail before the test is over. If you wish to use Excel for the tests, let me

know beforehand.

SPSS is the standard in statistical software in the social sciences because it is so powerful; however the student

edition costs about $100/year and it is somewhat difficult to use. We might look at it a little in class, but youre not

expected to get your own copy.

Assignments

Work Expectations. Following the APU Credit Hour Policy, to meet the identified student learning outcomes of this

course, this 3 unit course will require approximately:

-3 hours / week of classroom time.

-6 hours / week of reading, homework, and test preparation.

Reading. We will cover approximately 1 chapter of the textbook (except at the beginning, when well cover 2).

Homework. Every week you will have a homework packet due. There will be both Questions and Problems in each

homework assignment.

Questions: Keep the answers short. These will provide you with an excellent set of notes for preparing for

the tests and the final. Put the answers in outline form if appropriate.

Problems: Show all your work; explain your reasoning; be clear enough that your grandmother can

understand it. Its not enough to get the right answers (which are usually found in the back of the book).

You need to explain your reasoning.

Homework will be graded on a scale of 0-5 points. Youll get a 5 if you have done all of them perfectly, 4.5 with one or

two small mistakes, 4 if there are more mistakes, and a 3.5 or lower if the assignment is not completed or if work is

not shown on how the answers were obtained. Sometimes a 6th point will be available for difficult problems for

students aiming for an A.

Class Participation. This is a big part of your grade. Come to every class. Have fun. Tell jokes. Bring food.

example, everyone likes chocolate chip cookies.

For

Quizzes. On days that homework is due, be prepared for quizzes covering material from the previous week. The

Questions on the homework might very well be used for a quiz. We will not have quizzes every week, but you always

need to be prepared. If you miss a class, you will not be able to make up a quiz.

Tests and the Final exam. There will be one 1 hour test and a 2 hour final exam. You must do the work individually.

For each test will you will be allowed one-page of notes which may include formulas, definitions, and descriptions of

processes (but not names or examples). Full credit will be awarded to problems only if they include both the correct

answer and a demonstration of how the answer was obtained. Partial credit will awarded for answers that are less

than perfect. No credit will be awarded to problems when only an answer is presented with no explanation.

Major Project. Theres no major project to do. Hurray!

Group Presentation. Theres no group presentation to do. Hurray!

Grading Criteria

All assignments and tests will be

graded based on the clarity of your

explanations and the correctness of

your responses. You must use complete

sentences to explain your responses to

the problems.

There are many things in life more important than your grade in statistics (like loving God and loving people).

However, if you do well in statistics, hopefully youll be able to love others better. But doing well in statistics doesnt

mean that you will automatically do better in loving people. Statistics is simply a tool. Always concentrate on whats

most important in life.

Class Attendance and Make Up Work.

It is very important to arrive promptly and participate fully in every aspect of the class. Try not to miss any class

sessions. Each student will be allowed one excused class absence (either partial or complete). Each additional

absence (partial or complete) will reduce your class grade by 2%. If you miss more than one class, you can get credit

for the class you missed by submitting a 4 page (min. 3 page, 1 line) single-spaced outline of the textbook chapter

that was covered in the missed class. No other makeup work will be assigned.

Late Assignments.

Hard copies of all homework assignments need to be stapled before class begins and submitted at the beginning of

the class period. Any unstapled assignments will be penalized with a 10% reduction in grade. Late assignments will

be accepted with only a 10% penalty, because I really want you to get them in, up to the date of the midterm which

covers the appropriate chapter. After that, there will be a 50% reduction in grade.

The final deadline for submitting all homework is the last day of class before final exam week.

Help from the Office of Academic Retention

This class can be a bit scary and sometimes you might be distracted by various things happening in your life. I want

to do everything I can to help you succeed. If you prefer talking to someone else, in order to help you get the

encouragement that you need, I may refer you to the Office of Academic Retention if:

1) You miss two classes.

2) You miss two homework assignments or a midterm.

3) You dont seem to be adjusting to the APU community.

Withdrawal, Incompletes, and Re-taking the Course.

See the APU Undergraduate Catalog for these and all policies relating to academic records and registration.

APUs Academic Integrity Policy

The mission of Azusa Pacific University includes cultivating in each student not only the academic skills that are

required for a university degree, but also the characteristics of academic integrity that are integral to a sound

Christian education. It is therefore part of the mission of the university to nurture in each student a sense of moral

responsibility consistent with the biblical teachings of honesty and accountability. Furthermore, a breach of academic

integrity is viewed not merely as a private matter between the student and an instructor but rather as an act which is

fundamentally inconsistent with the purpose and mission of the entire university. A complete copy of the Academic

Integrity Policy is available in the Office of Student Life, the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Programs,

and online.

Note: Cheating includes (but is not limited to):

-copying from another student on a test

-copying answers from the back of the book or the internet.

If you cheat, expect to suffer. You will realize that you did something worse than failing; you will break the trust of

people who have confidence in you. You, your friends, and especially your family will be disappointed in you. You

will bring shame on yourself and on your family. You will receive a 0 on whatever you cheated on; this might very well

cause you to fail the course. Cheating in anyway will be reported to the Office of the Provost.

University and Departmental Policies

All University and departmental policies affecting student work, appeals, and grievances, as outlined in the

Undergraduate Catalog and/or Department Handbook will apply, unless otherwise indicated in this syllabus.

Support Services for Students with Disabilities

Students in this course who have a disability that might prevent them from fully demonstrating their abilities should

meet with an advisor in the Learning Enrichment Center (ext. 3849) as soon as possible to initiate disability

verification and discuss accommodations that may be necessary to ensure full participation in the successful

completion of course requirements.

Information Literacy and Use of the Library

Information literacy is defined as a set of abilities requiring individuals to recognize when information is needed and

have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information (American Library Association, 1989).

In this course, teaching and learning processes will employ the following information literacy standards, as endorsed

by the American Association for Higher Education (1999), the Association of College and Research Libraries (2000),

and the Council of Independent Colleges (2004). The students in this course will:

-determine the nature and extent of the information needed.

-access needed information effectively and efficiently.

This course does not require students to complete course assignments using resources available from the University

Libraries. However, research assistance for this course is available at apu.edu/library/.
