Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is to provide theoretical and practical foundation for understanding the importance of basic probability concepts and teach the student statistical thinking as a way of understanding the processes and events around us and to acquaint him with the basic methods of gathering and analyzing statistical data.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Project work


1. Descriptive statistics - statistical file with one factor, statistical file with two factors, grouped frequency distribution 2. Inductive statistics - random sample, point and interval estimations of parameters, hypothesis testing 3. Regression analysis - least squares approximation, linear regression, nonlinear regression
