MA 226 - (UC) Baseball and Statistics (SPS 226)
(3 cr.) This course covers SABRmetrics: the study of standard statistical topics using data derived from baseball records, which, for many students, is more easily understood and more interesting than data from the business or science world. The course looks at both descriptive and inferential statistics along with probability. Descriptive statistics covers measures of central tendency, tables and graphs, the normal and binomial distributions. Inferential statistics explores sampling, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, chi-square testing, and regression and correlation analysis. Students must possess a basic knowledge of baseball. Prerequisite: A math placement level of 2 or above, or successful completion of MA 100. Every Year, Fall and Spring
