Topics will include confidence intervals and hypothesis tests involving one or two samples, correlation and regression, contingency tables, and ANOVA.

Note: Meets four times per week. Students may receive credit for only one course among MAT116QR, MAT117QR and MAT208QR.

Prerequisite: C- or better in MAT090, an ACT math score of 20 or above (SAT 480 or above), or a passing score on MAT090 placement exam.
