This course is designed as an introduction to the theories and techniques relating to probability, statistics and data analysis as pertaining to biological and health sciences. Discrete and continuous probability distributions are studied including binomial, normal and t-distributions and descriptive statistics. More advanced and widely used methods will be introduced, including, but not limited to, regression and correlation, and analysis of variance. SPSS software will be introduced and used in the laboratory activities. We will also explore STATDISK designed for use with the course textbook. At the end of the course, students will be able to analyze real data sets, interpret results and provide quantitative evidence to support scientific conclusions.
