Bridge to Statistics
Certificate of Competency
Noncredit Certificates are awarded by departments and are not notated on official college transcripts. Contact the department directly for assistance and to apply.
The Certificate of Competency in Bridge to Statistics sequence includes two courses for students who need the core algebraic prerequisite skills, competencies and concepts used in Statistics. Students benefit from increased exposure to Algebra content and techniques through a variety of strategies along with additional opportunities to ask questions and practice skills. This certificate fully prepares students
for Statistics, which can be applied to the Mathematics requirement for transfer.
Program Learning Outcomes: Upon completion, students will be able to
• Demonstrate mathematical concepts, skills, and numeracy
needed for understanding Probability and Statistics
• Evaluate real-world situations and distinguish between and apply linear and exponential function models appropriately
• Analyze, interpret, and communicate results of linear and exponential models in a logical manner
• Organize sample data by constructing and/or evaluating tables, graphs, and numerical measures of characteristics of data
1. Meet the requirements for this certificate level.
2. Complete the following.
• Evaluate real-world situations and distinguish between and apply linear and quadratic function models
• Evaluate real-world situations and distinguish between and apply exponential, logarithmic, rational and discrete function models appropriately
• Analyze, interpret and communicate results of exponential, logarithmic and rational models in a logical manner from four points of view - visual, formula, numerical, and written
1. Meet the requirements for this certificate level.
