Statistics Learning Outcomes

Learning Goals for the Major Program in Mathematics with a Concentration in Statistics

At Wittenberg, math majors will develop a breadth of understanding
in calculus, linear algebra, statistics, and computer programming,
along with a depth of knowledge in algebra, analysis, or statistics.
  • Students will formulate complete, concise, and correct mathematical proofs.
  • Students will frame problems using multiple mathematical and statistical representations of relevant structures and relationships and solve using standard techniques.
  • Students will create quantitative models to solve real world problems in appropriate contexts.
  • Students will effectively use professional level technology tools to support the study of mathematics and statistics.
  • Students will clearly communicate quantitative ideas both orally and in writing to a range of audiences.

The coursework that a student undertakes with as a major in mathematics with a concentration in statistics will support the learning goals in the following way:

Learning Goals for the Minor Program in Statistics

At Wittenberg, stat minors will develop a breadth of understanding
in statistics and probability,
with the goal of applying statistics in context.
  • Students will summarize data visually and numerically.
  • Students will build and assess data-based models.
  • Students will learn and apply the tools of formal inference.
  • Students will ... the mathematical and probabilistic foundations of statistical inference.
  • Students will execute statistical analyses with professional software.

The coursework that a student undertakes with as a minor in statistics will support the learning goals in the following way:

Course Summarize Models Inference Math/Prob Software
