This course provides basic probabilistic theory and statistics. The aim of the course is learning the theorem and methods of statistics used in the field of information engineering. Students also learn how to use R-language that is a software environment for statistical computing.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) understand basic probability theory, and use probability distribution properly.
2) understand the concept of hypothesis testing, and use statistical tests properly.
Conditional probability, expected value, variance, binomial distribution, normal distribution, Chebyshev's inequality, hypothesis testing, t-test, R-language
Intercultural skills | Communication skills | ✔ Specialist skills | Critical thinking skills | ✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills |
Each class starts with the explanation of a new topic.
In the class occasionally, students are given exercise problems.
Students are asked to submit a midterm report and must take a final examination.
