Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Students will demonstrate knowledge of selected methods of the theory of probability and mathematical statistics. They will be able to carry out analyses of real-life data and justify theoretically all necessary operations.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Project work


The subject follows up on probability theory. It uses the tools of probability to present estimation of population parameters, hypothesis testing, modelling of technological processes with regression models and their assessment by correlation analysis. Multivariate regression is taught under the required theoretical conditions. Correlation analysis shows ways of measuring dependence for various types of variables.
