DIGI103-18S2 (C) Semester Two 2018

Statistics 1

 15 points16 Jul 2018 - 18 Nov 2018

Description

An introduction to the ideas, techniques and applications of statistics and probability.

An introduction to the ideas, techniques and applications of statistics and probability. The emphasis is on applying statistics to problems, selecting sensible techniques, following the methodology and interpreting the results. Understanding the concepts and computer-based solutions are emphasised and applications to commerce, the social sciences, the humanities, science and engineering are considered.

Particular topics include data analysis, summary statistics, probability, statistical distributions, estimation and inference (including confidence intervals, hypothesis tests and modelling).

All materials and organisational details will be available through Learn.

STAT101 has 34% of assessment allocated to supervised computer-based skills tests and on-line learning modules available in Learn. Weekly participation is monitored using Learn and the skills tests are based on the on-line tutorial questions.
As this is a 15 point course students should expect to spend about 150 hours on the course (NZQA guidelines), which comes to 10 hours per week for a 12 week semester on average. If you do this, records show you are most likely to pass the course.

Learning Outcomes

Students will be able to:

• understand a range of basic statistical concepts in
- data analysis: uncertainty, variation, summary statistics;
- probability: meaning of probability, sets, events and distributions;
- estimation: samples, populations, parameters, estimates and uncertainty;
- inference: hypotheses, tests, test statistics, test interpretations.

• perform and interpret a range of basic statistical procedures in
- data analysis: summary statistics and graphics;
- probability: calculations and identification/application of distributions;
- estimation: estimation of parameters and confidence intervals;
- inference: hypothesis tests and model building.

• use Excel in performing statistical calculations and producing diagrams;
• identify applications of statistics in other university subjects.

Timetable 2018
