In order to pass the course (grade 3) the student should be able to
- use a number of methods and techniques for visualisation of data sets;
- compute probabilities in simple cases;
- give an account of the concept random variable and be able to use some common probability distributions;
- understand the meaning of the central limit theorem;
- use point and interval estimates for some typical statistical problems;
- apply elementary regression for fitting measured data;
- give an account of some typical engineering applications of probability and statistics, e.g. reliability and quality control.
Descriptive statistics: measures of location and variation, frequency tables, bar diagrams, histograms, other diagrams and tools for visualisation. Introductory combinatorics and probability theory. Probability distributions: binomial, Poisson, normal, exponential. Central limit theorem. Point and interval estimation. The method of regression. Engineering applications, selected examples.
Lectures, lessons, computer exercises and problem solving sessions.
Written examination at the end of the course combined with discussions tasks and written assignments.
The course may very well be taught together with the course Study Technique for Engineers.
