This course is an introductory course designed for students without any background in statistics. The purpose of the course is to introduce some of the basic concepts of statistics that are used in most of the courses. The course covers some statistical graphs, data classification, measures of central tendency, measures of variation, counting methods. In addition, the course covers some basic topics in probability such as: axioms of probabilities, law of total probability, Bays’ theorem. The course concludes by briefly presenting the concept of random variables (discrete and continuous) and some major distribution function.

Lectures of the course are thought using Power Point slides (in ِArabic). Slides of the lectures are available in my website. Therefore, every student must have the slides of the subject with hem during the lecture. Also, the subjects are presented in an interactive way so every student is required to participate during the lecture.
All students must attend the lectures. Attendance will be taken at the beginning of each lecture. Any student fail to attend 25% of the course will not be allowed to take the final exam according to the university policy.
The final grade in the course is calculated according to the following distribution:
- Homework and Tutorial 10%
- Midterm-I 20%
- Midterm-II 20%
- Final Exam 50%
Attendance, participation and quizzes are also counted toward the final grading as a bonus in the course. Each takes about 10 minutes. The quizzes dates will not be announced. Normally, a quiz covers the materials presented in the same day of the quiz.
