Learning outcome

1. Knowledge. The student knows basic concepts in probability, simple probability modelsand statistical inference. In addition, the student knows a number of basic statistical methodsand the assumptions underlying these methods.2. Skills. The student is able to use his or her knowledge in recognising and analysing simpleforms of data in the natural sciences. In addition, the student is able to communicate withstatisticians about analysis of data arising in more complex situations.

Learning methods and activities

Lectures and compulsory exercises. Written final examination is the basis for the grade awarded in the course.

Further on evaluation

In the case that the student receives an F/Fail as a final grade after both ordinary and re-sit exam, then the student must retake the course in its entirety.
