# Basic Introductory Statistics - Distance Calculus Course Information

Basic Statistics course can best be described as a "first course of an introduction to basic statistics (without calculus)".This course has many names, all being equivalent:

- Introductory Statistics
- General Statistics
- Basic Statistics
- General Education Statistics

Our Basic Statistics course differs from a classroom/textbook-based course in that we employ Mastery Learning so that you complete all assignments at 100% to assure competancy, as well as our curriculum shifting the course to a laboratory-style course, where theorem/lemma/proof type exposition is replaced by running experiments in Mathematica as you would in a science laboratory to empirically deduce the concepts and behaviors of basic statistics, both solvable (classically) via hand-based techiques, as well as studying basic statistics and probability that can only be solved and investigated graphically and numerically using a computer. The Basic Statistics curriculum is highly visual and based upon observations of experiments run in LiveMath.

At Distance Calculus, we call our "Basic Statistics" course as Basic Statistics - Math 124 - 3 credits.

Courses Completed: Probability Theory

Review: Probability Theory was a great course. Very very thorough. I thought it would never end :). I was very prepared for my coursework in economics. Excellent refereshher of derivatives and integrals - really forced me to remember that stuff from freshman cal.
