Algebra Review

Knowledge of the following mathematical operations is required for STAT 200:

  • Addition
  • Subtraction
  • Division
  • Multiplication
  • Radicals (i.e., square roots)
  • Exponents
  • Summations  \(\left( \sum \right) \)
  • Factorials (!)

Additionally, the ability to perform these operations in the appropriate order is necessary. Use these materials to check your understanding and preparation for taking STAT 200.

We want our students to be successful! And we know that students that do not possess a working knowledge of these topics will struggle to participate successfully in STAT 200. 

Review Materials

Are you ready? As a means of helping students assess whether or not what they currently know and can do meets the expectations of instructors of STAT 200, the online program has put together a brief review of these concepts and methods. This is then followed by a short self-assessment exam that will help you determine if this prerequisite knowledge is readily available for you to apply.

Self-Assessment Procedure

  1. Review the concepts and methods on the pages in this section of this website. 
  2. Download and complete the Self-Assessment Exam.
  3. Review the Self-Assessment Exam Solutions and determine your score.

Your score on this self-assessment should be 100%! If your score is below this you should consider further review of these materials and are strongly encouraged to take MATH 021 or an equivalent course.

If you have struggled with the methods that are presented in the self-assessment, you will indeed struggle in the courses that expect this foundation.
