Data Analysis and Presentation JFA513

Introduction

The emphasis in this unit is on training scientists to be literate in statistical issues so that both "consumers" and "producers" of data analysis will be able to effectively communicate. Students will be able to critically assess, understand, and use information (qualitative and quantitative) that has been collected, analysed and presented by scientists from a range of disciplines. This will be achieved by providing a conceptual understanding of the methods of data analyses commonly used by scientists. Given the type of question asked and the data collected, students will be able to present and communicate data/information using statistics as a tool.
