Professor: Dr E K F Lam


Course Description
The discipline of statistics is concerned with situations involving uncertainty and variability. The interpretation of data needs special techniques when variability plays a role, as it usually does. Thus statistics forms an important descriptive and analytical tool of many scientific disciplines. Candidates with a mathematical background will find this course suitable, because the language of mathematics allows the subject of statistics to be presented with economy and clarity.
Assessment
One 2-hour examination (75% weighting) and a coursework assessment (25% weighting) based on assignments, tutorials, and a test
