SPS 226 - (UC) Baseball and Statistics (MA 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 have a satisfactory score on the placement test and possess a basic knowledge of baseball. Every Year, All
