Abstract : This syllabus supplements the basic theory and explanations of Robert Schlaifer's 'Introduction to Statistics for Business Decisions' (McGraw-Hill Book Company, 1961, York, Pennsylvania). This syllabus is primarily for: the average student who may have never been exposed to statistical theory; the student who has been away from school for a number of years; and the student who finds Schlaifer a bit too rapid for good digestion. The titles to the chapters in this syllabus are congruent with the titles given in the basic text. An attempt has been made to introduce problems to further illustrate the basic theory in order that the student may gain greater facility in problem setups, and gain a deeper sense of familiarity and feeling for inductive statistics.
