Basic statistical concepts, methods and skills necessary for students in business, commerce, psychology and the physical sciences to collect, appraise, present, analyse and interpret data are developed in this course. Emphasis is placed on understanding the basic concepts and principles of dealing with data, in particular descriptive and inferential statistics. 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 underpinnings of the methods used are not covered. Other statistics courses deal with this aspect.
