STA2300 Data Analysis (FOSCI)
Units 1.0 (Statistics) Band 6
Recommended Pre-requisite: CSC1402 or CIS1000
This course provides an understanding of basic statistical concepts and gives practice at some of the methods and skills necessary for students in business, commerce, psychology and the physical sciences to collect, appraise, present, analyse and interpret data. Students are introduced to the basic concepts involved in descriptive and inferential statistics. Emphasis is placed on understanding the basic concepts and principles of dealing with data. Because these concepts and methods are interdisciplinary in nature, students will encounter problems from many sources including their own area of interest. The use of statistical software is a core component of the course. The mathematical underpinning of the methods used are not covered. Other statistics courses deal with this aspect.
