Statistics (Bachelor course equivalent to Statistics in Agricultural Sciences)
- Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences)
In the theoretical part, basic knowledge regarding (co)variance analysis, regression analysis and simple non-parametric methods is gained. Students develop understanding of theory by applying it on practically relevant examples. Examples, solved together but also by students on their own (both by hand and by computer), broaden the knowledge.
Finally, students are able to prepare data for statistical analyses accordingly, to use adequate methods and to interpret results correctly.
