Data Handling and Statistics 2 KMA253

Hobart

Note:

Introduction

Data Handling and Statistics 2 is the second of three applied statistics units offered by the School of Natural Sciences (Mathematics). This unit is designed to extend students' knowledge of statistical data analysis. It builds on the concepts introduced in Data Handling & Statistics 1 and gives a detailed treatment of regression and ANOVA within a general linear modelling framework. Students will become proficient in the use of a contemporary statistical package R, the interpretation of its output and reporting of statistical analyses to statisticians and to the general public. Students will be able to evaluate the appropriateness of experimental designs and statistical methods and suggest changes to designs and analyses.

Learning Outcomes

  • understand both the need for and the limitations of statistical analyses applied to data from diverse sources including both observational studies and experimental designs.
  • apply theoretical and practical knowledge of modern statistical analysis to construct statistical models for a wide range of problems in various disciplines. implement and test these models in the statistical software R.
  • interpret results of the statistical analyses and communicate the design of the experiment, the goal of the experiment and the analytical results to both statisticians and non-statisticians.
