After completing the course the student can:
- calculate different mean and standard deviation figures for a given statistical data
- determine the regression line and correlation, and understand their significance
- identify and draw various statistical diagrams
- recognize the basic concepts of continuous and discrete probability distributions
- normalize a normally distributed variable and calculate the associated probabilities
- calculate confidence intervals and understand the significance of error in statistical mathematics
- determine p-value using the z-test and t-test of average
- construct contingency tables and apply the chi-square test

Probability and Statistics (3rd edition),Murray R. Spiegel, John J. Schiller, R. Alu Srinivasan, SCHAUM’S outlines.
The contents of the course give understanding to use the mean and standard deviation,.. , and the figures to analyze the data.
The students will team up for a project work and writing reports on some current and relevant aspect of statistics, which gives everyone an opportunity to understand the topic; all students will develop their statistical proficiency.
Task-based assessment supports learning and is continuous throughout the course. Studying in an international group develops students’ ability to intercultural communication and multicultural collaboration.
