Students required to check the timetable for commencement date of this unit.

This unit is an introduction to quantitative data analysis techniques. Covering topics from basic inference through to generalised linear models, time series analysis and clustering and discrimination, this subject gives students the opportunity to become familiar with a variety of modern statistical techniques and their implementation using the R programming language. Students will improve their ability to recognise good experimental design, choose appropriate analysis techniques, present their statistical analyses, and learn the importance of meeting statistical assumptions when analysing data. The theoretical skills above will be reinforced using a combination of short exercises that contribute to a portfolio assignment, and a larger practical assignment that may involve the student’s own data, if available.
