A brief introduction to the concepts of calculus and its applications to social and scientific fields. Topics include: functions and models, derivatives of algebraic and exponential functions, optimization problems, antiderivatives, and the concept of integrals. This is the second semester of the college math sequence designed for students interested in Biology and Life Sciences. This course fulfills the general education core requirements for Biology and Life Sciences majors who matriculated prior to Fall 2012 and has been approved by University Studies Curriculum for students matriculating in Fall 2012 or later.

Introduction to exploratory data analysis using R, including graphical techniques, confirmatory statistics, interval estimates, hypothesis tests, bootstrap estimates.

Continuation of MTH 331. Classical estimation methods and hypothesis testing are studied. This course also covers Chi square tests for goodness-of-fit and independence, regression and correlation analysis, and one-way and two-way analysis of variance including factorial designs and tests for the separation of means.
