The most recent syllabi available can be found in our syllabus bank.


online courses iconMathematics for Contemporary Life
Students learn basic concepts in quantitative reasoning (number systems, data manipulation, basic statistics), with emphasis on problem solving using computational methods. This course uses a textbook and focuses on applications related to consumer issues to develop computational and problem-solving skills. Students learn to transform data into information and apply quantitative methods to evaluate information and solve real-world problems.
Note: This course is 100 percent online; please visit www.purchase.edu/online for details.

online courses iconBehavioral Statistics
An introduction to data analysis, with coverage of both descriptive and inferential statistics, and an introduction to probability. Class discussions focus on the use of sample, sampling, and population distributions as they are employed in hypothesis testing. Inferential tests include t-tests, ANOVAs, chi square, regression, and nonparametric tests.
Note: This course is 100 percent online; please visit www.purchase.edu/online for details. It is intended to fulfill the statistics requirement for psychology majors. It may also be used to satisfy the statistics requirement for economics and environmental studies majors, and it counts as a basic science support course for biology majors.
