MATH 1005 course outline

MATH 1005, UNE’s online sta­tis­tics class, offers the same major sub­ject and con­tent areas as a tra­di­tion­al sta­tis­tics course but dif­fers in an empha­sis on med­ical­ly rel­e­vant mate­r­i­al. A sub­stan­tial num­ber of human health exam­ples are includ­ed to demon­strate the applic­a­bil­i­ty of sta­tis­tics to health and dis­ease. View the full MATH 1005 online sta­tis­tics syl­labus.

Course delivery

This online sta­tis­tics class is deliv­ered using Black­board Learn and includes lec­ture out­lines, home­work prob­lems with solu­tions, quizzes, and online sup­port. The sta­tis­ti­cal pro­gram SPSS will be used, and there will be a cul­mi­nat­ing course project. Each week the pro­fes­sor will have an hour of avail­abil­i­ty via email or phone.  Com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the pro­fes­sor is strong­ly encour­aged.

Complete at your own pace

Work­ing at the pace typ­i­cal for a four semes­ter hour course, the aver­age stu­dent will com­plete this online sta­tis­tics class in approx­i­mate­ly 16 weeks. Many stu­dents are non­tra­di­tion­al stu­dents who have elect­ed an online course for flex­i­bil­i­ty.  Since the course is self-paced, you may com­plete the course in few­er than 16 weeks.


There are no pre­req­ui­site cours­es that must be com­plet­ed before reg­is­ter­ing for this online sta­tis­tics course.
