APPLIED STATISTICAL METHODS
Credit points: 15
Building on the understanding of applied statistical methods developed in first year statistics subjects, STA2ASM provides an understanding of these methods at an intermediate level. The subject places a special emphasis on applications of statistics to biological and medical problems. There are specific questions in the assignments, project, test and examination that reflect such an emphasis. This subject does not require a knowledge of calculus. An introduction to the open source statistical computing package R is included.
