Business, Engineering and Technology
On-campus block of classes
In this module the students are being provided with mathematical knowledge required to perform statistical data gathering and analysis so that they can be able to understand operational and business systems that are often subjected to large variation and uncertainty. Mathematical statistics provides the students with the ability to deal with the statistical concepts of data analysis, probability theory, stochastic modelling, statistical inference and regression analysis.
On completion of the module, students will be expected to be able to:
|1||Understand data representation and measures of variability|
|2||Apply the concepts involved in probability theory|
|3||Use mathematical statistics to solve sampled data|
|4||Perform parametric tests non-parametric tests|
|5||Perform calculations based on correlation analysis|
|6||Perform calculations by using statistical inference|
|7||Do linear regression analysis|
Coursework assessment: 30%
This module introduces the students to mathematical statistics that will enable them to apply statistical theories and techniques to solve real-life problems that are subjected to variation and uncertainty with more focus being placed on the identification, formulation and solving of engineering related problems.There will be a combination of lectures that will include interactive elements, and class tests. All outcomes will be assessed by means class tests and a final examination.
