This unit is essentially an advanced version of STAT2012 with an emphasis on both methods and the mathematical derivation of these methods: Tests of hypotheses and confidence intervals, including t-tests, analysis of variance, regression - least squares and robust methods, power of tests, non-parametric methods, non-parametric smoothing, tests for count data, goodness of fit, contingency tables. Graphical methods and diagnostic methods are used throughout with all analyses discussed in the context of computation with real data using an interactive statistical package.
Three 1 hour lectures, one 1 hour tutorial and one 1 hour computer laboratory per week.
One 2-hour exam, assignments and/or quizzes, computer practical reports and one computer practical exam (100%)
