data based on t, chi square and F distributions. Hypothesis testing in binomial models. Simple
linear regression and analysis of variance for normal data. Goodness of fit and non-parametric

Learning outcome

1. Knowledge. The student has a good knowledge about point estimation, confidence intervals
and hypothesis testing, inference for one- and two-sample normal and for binomial models. The student
also has a good knowledge about simple linear regression, analysis of variance and some
nonparametric tests.
