Objectives The main purpose of this course is to enable students to know the most important inferential statistical methods and being to identify and apply the adequate method to each specific real situation in business and institutional environments, with the help of statistical software.
Program 1 - Descriptive statistics
1.1 Basic concepts.
1.2 Frequency distributions.
1.3 Measures of central tendency and of absolute and relative dispersion.
2 - Probability theory.
2.1 Probability concepts. Axioms and theorems.
2.2 Conditional probabilities.
2.3 Independent events.
2.4 Bayes Theorem.
3 - Random variables.
3.1 Concept of random variables.
3.2 Probability and distribution functions.
3.3 Parameters.
4 - Distributions of discrete variables:
4.1 Uniform
4.2 Bernoulli
4.3 Binomial
4.4 Geometric, hipergeometric and negative binomial
4.5 Poisson.
5 -  Distributions of continuous variables:
5.1 Uniform
5.2 Exponential
5.3 Normal
6 - Sample distributions  
6.1 Central limit theorem
6.2 Theoretical sample distributions
6.2.1 Normal distribution
6.2.2 Chi-square, t-Student and F-Snedecor
7. Sampling: Bernoulli and normal populations.
8. Using SPSS for analysis and interpretation of results of descriptive statistics.
Evaluation Method Continuous assessment: 2 written tests (40% each); group (3-4 elements) coursework (20%) with oral discussion if necessary. Delivered by e-learning with a paper copy; attendance of at least 80% of classes; average grade at least 10, not lower than 8 in any test; students with grades higher than 17 will be subject to oral exam to defend their grades.
Final exam: Students with a grade of 10 or more get approval. Grades higher than 17 will be subject to oral exam.
Teaching Method Each student should acquire analytical information gathering, written and oral communication skills.
To acquire these skills the following learning methodologies (LM) will be used:
1.Expositional, to the presentation of the theoretical reference frames
2.Participative, with resolution of exercises
3.Active, with the realization of individual and group courseworks
4.Experimental with computer real applications.
5.Self-study, related with autonomous work by the student.
