The Theory and methods of statistics play and important role in society, First Aid, hospitals, disasters and industry.
This module aims to lay foundations in probability and distribution theory , data analysis.
It begins by defining probability via axioms and develops some of its useful properties. Random variables are introduced, and the properties of probability used to develop distributions of practical importance. Statistical analysis is introduced with simple ideas of summarizing data. Basic ideas of statistics (including techniques of estimation) are covered and applied to data sets.
