Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

To present both traditional and non-parametric statistical methods for the assessment of geo-phenomena. To consolidate the knowledge of the current state of computer science, supplemented by actual knowledge and skills required in other technical courses of study.

Teaching methods



The compulsory subject having curriculum as follows: Basic information about purpose of statistics and statistical tools; Statistical terms, statistical characteristics and dependencies; Definition of enumeration methods of some statistical characteristics; Methodology of data collection, statistical evaluation and practical interpretation. This subject is the only one with the mathematical contents; regarding to this fact, the fundamentals of mathematics topic is included, with emphasis to applications in common scientific disciplines. The informatics topic gives the basics of informatics and practical application demonstration, both is providing in the computer laboratory. The instruction is guided through data processing and information obtaining by different tools from different information resources, primarily from own data resource files, and Internet environment. The factual content is updated yearly, regarding to current face of computer science evolution and (world) computer net possibilities.
