Prerequisites and co-requisites
Descriptive statistics Probability theory Random variables Parameters of a random variable Discrete probability distributions Continuous probability distributions Sum of random variables Central limit theorem Point estimate Interval estimation Hypothesis tests Simple Linear Regression Model
Sensitize students for the statistical treatment of questions essential to development and application in the most varied areas of knowledge.
Knowledge, abilities and skills to be acquired
Knowledge and use of tools that allow them to learn and assimilate concepts in subsequent disciplines in the scope of the degree. In particular, the use of statistical software for the treatment and analysis of data.
Teaching methodologies and assessment
Theoretical classes with exposition of subjects and practical classes with solving of proposed problems. Continuous assessment with two tests that are worth 90% (grade obtained by simple arithmetic mean) of the final grade, and participation in classes and proposed assignments that are worth 10%. Students who do not attend at least 75% of classes will not be considered for continuous assessment. Students who obtain 10 or more values in the continuous assessment are exempt from final examination.
