**Objectives**

The purpose of this course is to elaborate the basic concepts and knowledge about statistics. The course is designed about the importance of statistics in daily life as well as the uses of statistics in different fields of life such as mathematics, agriculture, marketing, finance, geography, mass communication, computer science, engineering, social sciences, and various fields’ medical science, etc.

**Learning Outcomes**

This course deals with the graphical representation to gives the general knowledge about how can justify the real life problem throw a graphical way. The course gives the guideline about the measure of the location like arithmetic mean, median, mode, harmonic mean, and geometric mean their uses, advantages and disadvantages with various aspects of real life data set. The application of the measure of dispersion is also an important part of this course. The shape of the distribution, method of identifying the shape of the distribution such as skewness and kurtosis are there in the scheme. The basic concepts of the probability theory, the classical probability with their application in various fields, and the different laws of probability are part of this course. This focuses on the conceptual and numerical formation of descriptive statistics.
