The ability to systematically collect, organise, analyse and interpret data are key professional skills. Data are generated from a wide variety of activities such as experimental records, surveys or consumer activity. This subject presents the conceptual framework and statistical techniques relevant to the synthesis of these data sets and their application to complex real-world problems. Topics covered include common distributions and data summaries, statistical tests for means and variance, standard experimental techniques for testing regression, significance and quality control. Students participate in an extension seminar focusing on the creative integration of learned technical skills and their ability to articulate the relevance of the mathematics being studied to their career.
