Probability & Statistics
The class provides an introduction to probability theory, descriptive statistics (data exploration and graphical inference; measures of central tendency, dispersion, and correlation; simple and multiple linear regression), and inferential statistics (sampling distributions, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing). Theoretical concepts in the course will be illustrated with real-life examples and datasets, which students will analyse using the R software environment.
