Hobart

Note:

Introduction

Data Handling and Statistics 3 is the third of three applied statistics units offered by
the School of Natural Sciences (Mathematics). It provides an extension of the
concepts, methods and tools introduced in KMA253. It is a 'hands-on' course in which
the emphasis is on the development of skills in the selection and application of
statistical methods and the presentation of statistical results. Statistical methodology
covered in the course will be selected from the following: analysis of variance applied
in the area of experimental designs; generalised linear methodology; multivariate
statistical methodology; methods for analysing frequency data; mixed-effects models,
and model selection. Expertise with the statistical computing language R will be
extended. Examples will be drawn from the physical, biological and social sciences.
