Course detail

Statistics 2

FP-STA2Acad. year: 2020/2021

Students will acquire basic knowledge of mathematical statistics, categorical and correlation analysis, analysis of variances, regression analysis and time series analysis.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will acquire basic knowledge of mathematical statistics, categorical and correlation analysis, analysis of variances, regression analysis and time series analysis.
At the end of the course students will be able to use these methods in master's courses and in the real managerial problems.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Teaching consists of lectures that have an explanation of basic principles and methodology of the discipline, practical problems and their sample solutions.
Exercise promote the practical knowledge of the subject presented in the lectures.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

The course-unit credit is awarded on the following conditions (max. 40 points):
- participation in seminars,
- elaboration of control tests and semestral assignments.

The exam (max. 60 points)
- has a written form.
In the first part of the exam student solves 4 examples within 80 minutes. In the second part of the exam student works out answers to 3 theoretical questions within 15 minutes.

The mark, which corresponds to the total sum of points achieved (max 100 points), consists of:
- points achieved in control tests and semestral assignments,
- points achieved by solving examples,
- points achieved by answering theoretical questions.

The grades and corresponding points:
A (100-90), B (89-83), C (82-76), D (75-69), E (68-60), F (59-0).

Aims

Learning outcomes of the course unit is to acquaint students with the principal of mathematical statistics, categorical and correlation analysis, analysis of variances, regression analysis and time series analysis so that they are able to apply this knowledge appropriately in management, informatics and economic problems.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Attendance at lectures is not mandatory, but is recommended. Attendance at exercises is required and checked by the tutor. An excused absence of a student from seminars can be compensated for by submitting solution of alternate exercises.
