Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The goal of the course is to serve as a theoretical and practical base to understand the importance of the basic notions in probability, and teach the student statistical way of thinking as a mean of understanding real life processes, introduce basic methods of collecting and analysing statistical data, and show the student how to use these general methods in other courses of study and in professional career. The graduate of this course should be able: • understand and use basic notions in combinatorics and probability theory • formulate questions, which can be answered based on the given data, for this purpose learn the principles of collecting, processing data and presentation of relevant values and results • choose and use suitable statistical methods for data analysis • suggest and evaluate conclusions (inference) and predictions obtained from data
